Knoxville Children’s Theatre presents Thumbelina through July 27

July 16, 2014

Knoxville Children’s Theatre will present a clever new re-telling of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale Thumbelina. The play will be performed July 11 through 27, Thursdays and Fridays at 7 PM; Saturdays at 1 PM and 5 PM; Sundays at 3 PM.

The show is KCT’s 59th full-scale production and features 12 young actors in the cast.

Tiny Thumbelina was supposed to be married to Navarre, prince of the Pixies, but a mysterious sorceress has cursed her to lose her memory in order to have the prince for herself. Thumbelina has many adventures on her way home, escaping from an amorous toad, surviving a fall off a flying hummingbird, and getting assistance from a tarantula and a courageous fortune teller.. Meanwhile, the Prince is under pressure to choose a new Princess, and Thumbelina’s return may be too late to claim her crown.

KCT’s Thumbelina is a modern re-telling of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, using elements of Homer’s The Odyssey, and the plots of many other familiar fairy tales, such as “The Ugly Duckling” and “The Princess and The Pea.” Famous characters from the worlds of The Odyssey (such as the soothsayer Cassandra) and Fairy Tales (such as Goldilocks and Red Riding Hood) combine into an unforgettably humorous and adventuresome tale.
