The Actors’ Playhouse presents children’s musical "Peter Rabbit and the Garden of Doom." Peter Rabbit really loves vegetables, but when his sweet-toothed sisters Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail want only cakes and cookies, that’s all Mother Rabbit will serve. Luckily he’s found a source for his veggies: when Mother isn’t looking, he trades sweets for produce with his cousin Benjamin Bunny, who won’t share his mysterious source of vegetables with Peter. 2 p.m. Saturdays. Select weekday 10 a.m. performances. Additional performances through Nov. 16. Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre, 280 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables. $17.
