Tender as the dawn, Margery Williamss Velveteen Rabbit is classic childrens story-telling at its very, very best. The tale is about a much-loved, soft stuffed rabbit who becomes real after he nurses a little boy through a bout with scarlet fever. Now imagine this sweetness as a ballet complete with whimsical costumes and lovely ballerinas. Thats whats coming from San Franciscos renowned Dance Company ODC. Called delightful and imaginative by The New York Times and sophisticated enough for adults by the L.A. Times, the ballet makes a one-day stop here. And families can make an afternoon of it by taking their children to a British-style tea (complete with scones) that starts before the performance.
