Chantilly Lace

Chantilly Lace is a six-year-old girl, a bunny, full of life, fun and excitement loves life, is permanently optimistic and has endless enthusiasm, many interests, and countless passions.

Chantilly Lace is no ordinary rabbit because she has exciting, fun adventures every day. Chantilly Lace is an ensemble show so alongside Chantilly, are her family, friends, village, and school. With Sister Peggy Sue, and friends; Delilah Dog, Clementine Cat, Elvis the panda, Jerry, and Lewis the bears, she gets up to exciting adventures into mischief.

Chantilly Lace is an inherently diverse proposition; it doesn’t matter to Chantilly what her friends are, they’re her friends. Like the teachers at her school Mrs La Bamba and Mr Tutti Fruitti, our characters, their diversity is inclusive, embedded and celebrated.

Chantilly Lace is anthropomorphic, so all the other characters are different species of animals, so the audience sees themselves reflected back in the world of characters and will see them as a space of identification.

Chantilly Lace pursues a new interest or finding out how something works and getting herself or her sister or one of her friends into a mess, and then Chantilly’s job is to find a resolution. Children can learn along with Chantilly the right way to do the things they may dream of doing .

Chantilly Lace is an opportunity to bring a new engaging and diverse proposition to pre-school programming that has a clear social value.
