Creative Arts Theater Presents: Who’s In Rabbit’s House?

Someone is in Rabbit’s house and won’t let him in!   Some of his bigger animal friends try to help him, but only make matters worse.  Audience members will learn that problems are not always solved by those with size and strength. 

If you want to find out who finally helps Rabbit, come check out another entertaining puppet show by the Creative Arts Theater, part of the City of Tampa Parks and Recreation Department.  The show, an African Trickster tale,  is based on the book by the same name written by Verna Aardema.

Find out when this play is coming to a library near you by checking out our events calendar.  The Creative Arts Theater will be performing several different plays throughout the year, so stay tuned for more information!
