The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane Sneak Preview

Based on Kate DiCamillo’s book, this is a story of friendship and finding oneself. Edward Tulane is a toy china rabbit owned by 10-year-old Abilene Tulane. As Abilene and her family go on an ocean voyage, Edward is ripped from her hands and finds himself submerged on the ocean floor. As he journeys back to find Abilene, he finds himself reflecting on how to love and care for others. Come see a couple scenes, meet the actors, and register to win tickets to the full performance at the Des Moines Community Playhouse. Don’t forget to check out the book from the library!
