The Velveteen Rabbit 

December 11-12, 7:30 pm, 13 3:00pm

Margery Williams classic story The Velveteen Rabbit or How Toys Become Real has been reimagined into a short musical! Follow the journey of a stuffed rabbit on her quest to become real. With a little love from a child, and just a pinch of fairy magic we realize “everything that is real was imagined first.” Watch this story come alive on stage this holiday season. 

Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for seniors, children, and students.

Volunteer Opportunities:     Let's put the "Community" back in Community Theatre!
Have you ever dreamed of working in Show Biz?  The Chesterfield Community Theatre is always looking for volunteers to join our collaborative family-- no previous experience required, but enthusiasm and curiosity are a must!  We are seeking volunteers to contribute in costume and prop construction, publicity, rehearsal support, concessions, and fundraising events.  As productions evolve, specific needs will also be posted on this webpage.  For more information, please email Artistic Director Rebecca Barringhaus at

Mastering Stage Management
Stage managers are the invisible stars of live theatre... if a backstage crew is at the top of their game, the show goes so smoothly that you'd never know they were there!  During each Chesterfield Community Theatre production, 3-4 student volunteers are selected to serve as stage crew.  These middle school, high school, or college level students attend all rehearsals, helping to develop the "technical" side of the production: organizing and constructing props, collecting and fitting costumes, choreographing scene changes, and assisting the director.  During performances, armed with headset and flashlight, they disappear into the wings to act out their own impressive show backstage.  For information or to apply for a Mastering Stage Management slot, please email Artistic Director Rebecca Barringhaus at
