KidzStuff Theatre For Children Presents: “Thumbelina”

Thumbelina Fairies

Thumbelina is a character-filled journey of an old Danish yarn, with droplets of KidzStuff magic and fairy dust.

A Mother who longs for a child, gets more than expected when she meets two flamboyant fairies and wishes for a fairy baby.

Fairy babies are not actually babies, but they will always be very tiny indeed. There are many challenges Thumbelina faces on her shrunken adventure to meet her mother, including a famous frog family and a wealthy Mole named, well.. Mole.

So grab on your tiny shoes, sprinkle yourselves with fairy dust and join us in the magical garden to help Thumbelina find her Mum.

With over 20 years experience she has toured New Zealand, with Capital E, The Theatre & Health Education Trust (THeTA) and Calico Young Peoples Theatre.
