LEARN // Educational Lobby Display
In anticipation of the 150th birthday anniversary celebration of Beatrix Potter Enchantment Theatre Company is preparing a special educational lobby display that will travel with the Peter Rabbit™ Tales production. The display will include photographs of Ms. Potter with her actual real life animal friends as well as facsimiles of her artwork showing her original renderings of the characters that will be seen onstage. We will highlight the many ways Ms. Potter was a person ahead of her time as author, illustrator, natural scientist, conservationist, businesswoman, philanthropist and emancipated woman. The display will tie in with our educational study guide and online materials for families.
