Peter Rabbit Is Lost! is an original adaptation based on characters in Beatrix Potter children’s books including The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck, and others. The play is written by Rae Johnson and will be directed by Brooke Ferguson and Angela Klimaytis.

Boys and girls between ages 6 and 9 are encouraged to audition. All levels of experience are welcome, and auditions are open to children from any town.
