Peter Rabbit doesn’t think life as a rabbit is all it’s cracked up to be in this spirited children’s musical. His mother is always making him do chores, and Peter’s had just about all he can take of his goody two-shoes twin sisters. After being picked on for the last time, Peter decides to run away from home and find a better place to live — somewhere he can be in charge, do whatever he wants, and be free of responsibility. But as Peter struggles to live with other animals, from feisty squirrels to sewing mice, he begins to realize his life at home might not have been so bad after all.

A Peter Rabbit Tale is a Voyage production. Voyage is a theatre experience for the young, founded by ArtWorks Academy. While there is value in all live theatrical productions, theatre developed specifically for children and youth is done so in a way that ignites their imagination and invites them to share in the wonder that only live theatre can bring. Voyage produces plays and musicals for all ages. Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) productions have been developed by theatre across the globe since the 1920s. They encompass different forms of theatre that are attended by or created for younger audiences. Theatre for the Very Young (TVY) is a theatre genre that has been popular in Europe and Australia for decades, but has only recently gained visibility in the U.S. We are proud to offer both TVY and TYA performances.
“ArtWorks Academy helped me discover my passion for Musical Theatre. The owners, Katie and Michael, became my biggest role models, and I made life long friends. This theatre is the reason I was able to get into Oklahoma City University’s School of Music. If you’re looking for a foundation for your future success, go to ArtWorks Academy!” -Mackenzie M.
