Princess Thimbelina



Princess Thimbelina, a GIANT show

Princess Thimbelina finds happiness by believing  in what her heart tells her to be true.

Hans Christian Andersen narrates his classic fairy tale of Thimbelina, the little girl no bigger than your thumb — so small she could sit atop a thimble.

All of the classic characters are in this play: Mumford Mole, the Frog, Angus the Bird, Miss Spider and the Prince of Sunflowers. The production features our trademark GIANT puppets, fanciful costumed characters and live actress Holli Rubin as Princess Thimbelina!
