The immersive experience will appear in Covent Garden from the 21st March until the 16th April.
Histrionic Productions have announced The Peter Rabbit Easter Adventure will take over Covent Garden from later this month. Combining a mix of live performance and puppetry, visitors will be transported back to a Covent Garden of old, teeming with fresh flowers, fruit and vegetables as Beatrix Potter heads out on a mission to rescue Jemima Puddle-Duck from the clutches of Mr. McGregor.
This interactive 50 minute adventure will see families being able to experience Peter Rabbit’s adventures in person as they accompany Beatrix Potter to search for secret notes,
maps, and other clues and meet Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, and a few surprise encounters along the way.
The show has been adapted by Calum Finlay, directed by Barney McElholm and designed by Tina Torbey.
As well as the experience itself, The Easter Adventure Shop is now open to offer Peter Rabbit merchandise, a café which is serving a range of delicious refreshments and drinks, as well as an activity area featuring a programme of fun-filled Easter activities for all of the family.
Included in the ticket is an ‘Activity Burrow’ for creative crafting for all ages including letter writing to Beatrix Potter and a Peter Rabbit reading corner. Additional activities available on site include Mr. McGregor’s Obstacle Course for thrill-seeking children who want to test their driving skills in a mini ROVER for ages 4 and above and families will have the opportunity to clamber onto Mr. McGregor’s tractor and have a souvenir photograph taken with Peter Rabbit.
Adam McKenzie Wylie, Founder, Histrionic Productions said “After a hugely successful inaugural outing at Blenheim Palace last summer for The Peter Rabbit Garden Adventure,
Histrionic Productions is delighted to be staging The Peter Rabbit Easter Adventure at Covent Garden this Easter holiday. The combination of Peter Rabbit, the inspirational surroundings of London’s original fruit & veg market and Eastertime is perfect theatrical-alchemy for an all-new, urban, family, immersive experience for 2023 and we are delighted to once again be working with our friends at Penguin Ventures to bring this family-favourite to life in the heart of old London.”
