The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
Feb. 3 – 12, 2017
Hal & Martha Hyer Wallis Theater
By Kate DiCamillo, adapted by Dwayne Hartford

The popular Imagine U family theatre series, now in its sixth year, presents a moving stage adaptation of the award-winning tale by Kate DiCamillo, winner of the prestigious Boston Globe–Horn Book Award and a Parents’ Choice Award for children’s fiction. An elegant china rabbit named Edward Tulane is snatched from the arms of the little girl who adores him, and suddenly his easy existence becomes an epic journey that touches the lives of everyone he meets along the way back to home. Northwestern faculty member Rives Collins (THE HUNDRED DRESSES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH) directs this heartwarming play about being loved and learning to love in return.
