Thumbelina is an enchanting tale of a miniature girl trying to find her place in the world, brought to life through live music, dance and song.

Children and their adults play an active role in helping Thumbelina escape from a hungry toad, build a shelter from sticks and through their play, give her the strength to carry on and make it safely home.

A gentle and playful experience with the beauty of the natural world at its heart.
