Sponsorship Information


Knuffle Bunny is a charming book for all ages about a toddler named Trixie who loses her favorite toy bunny, but is so young she's not speaking yet so she can't tell her dad what happened. Knuffle Bunny is a Caldecott Honor book that spawned two sequels and even this musical.


This show is best for ages 3-11 years old** The show is about 35 minutes and is beautifully told for the early reader age group. Please see our suggestion for about guidelines for our littlest visitors.  

This is a FREE show for all who attend sponsored by wonderful people in our community who love to support children's literacy. Our theatre holds about 150 people with seating on the floor for the children.  

  • You must arrive at the theatre and stay in line to secure your seat for the show. We reccommend about 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to showtime. 
  • There are no reservations unless you are a sponsor. (We do this because in the past, when we've allowed reservations, people often do not show up and it takes a spot away from a child who truly wanted to see the show.) The best way to handle this is to have a 'first come first serve' method of serving our community.  
  • The lobby is a large, heated area comfortable for you and your little ones  to wait for the show. 
  • Please keep in mind that seating is limited, and if we fill up, we will try our best to save you a spot at another performance that weekend. 
  • Seating inside the show area begins about 30 minutes prior to each show. 
  • Children ages 3 and up may sit on the floor with the other kids without a parent sitting with them, but the parent or caretake MUST stay in the theatre in an adult seat. 
  • After the show receive their very own copy of the book to take home and enjoy!
  • Questions? Email [email protected] for more info! 

**Babies and toddlers are welcome, but can become quite loud if they cry or become impatient, so we suggest a sitter, or sit near the edges so you can sneak out if your baby becomes aggitated or upset. Thanks for making it a enjoyable show for all who attend!
