"Princess Thimbelina" Giant Puppet Performance at PuppetWorld
Please note, this event has expired.
Our GIANT Puppet musicals are unique the World over!
Princess Thimbelina knows you can find happiness if you have faith in what your heart tells you to be true.
Hans Christian Andersen asks the audience to imagine the littlest flower just ready to bloom. Before the bud can open a Garden Witch changes the flower into a tiny princess. The flower blossoms into a girl, no bigger than your thumb. When she sits atop a thimble, the Witch pronounces her “Princess Thimbelina!”.
Our hallmark nine-foot-tall puppets perform in Princess Thimbelina, our original fully-staged giant puppet musical. Tiny Thimbelina performs with a cast of giant garden animal puppets, costumed characters, traditional puppets, and a life-sized Bunraku (Japanese) style puppet portraying H. C. Andersen himself.
Our Giant Puppet programs include an Intro to Puppetry, Performance, and Backstage tour.
