Beatrix Potter Cropped
Holly Stevenson has been an actress for 25 years and has performed one-woman shows for thousands of Atlanta schoolchildren. As for the character of Beatrix Potter, a local playwright wrote the show with Stevenson in mind. Initially, Stevenson was unfamiliar with Beatrix Potter other than the “Tale of Peter Rabbit,” but she developed a deep admiration for the English artist and storyteller.
Stevenson says, “I feel very privileged to perform for young audiences and I love hearing their laughter and appreciation. It’s amazing that after a show, I find that I have new friends who let me know that, in some way, I have made a contribution to their lives. It’s a very special gift to me.”
In addition to Stevenson’s performance, tea will be served in the formal garden, along with lots of games and prizes. Attendance is limited and admission is $10 per person. For reservations, call Barrington Hall at 770-640-3855.
