El Campanil Children’s Theatre presents Thumbelina this Friday and Sunday

 Friday January 11, 2013   7:30 pm and Sunday January 13, 2013   2:00 pm

Classic tale by Hans Christian Anderson, adapted by Vera Morris

Thumbelina is one of Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen’s most delightful characters, a miniature girl born from a flower who has to find her own way in the world of nature. “Once there was a girl no taller than a thumb, so she was called Thumbelina.”  This classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen, is a wonderfully imaginative production which takes us into Thumbelina’s world, fraught with dangers for one so small.  A water rat named Walter and an unpleasant family of toads are both determined to capture her.  Plus, a grumpy old mole thinks she’ll make a fine companion in his gloomy house.  If only Thumbelina can find Prince, the boy who promised to take her to the Land of the Little People, where she’ll be safe.  Good things truly do come in small packages!

Performed by our own Children’s Theatre company.  Performers usually range from ages 7 – 16.
