Synopsis

CBeebies’ favourite personalities are lined up to star in this unique adaptation of the original Hans Christian Andersen tale, Thumbelina.


Thumbelina follows the adventures of a thumb-sized girl in an oversized world of woodland creatures and giant plants as she tries to find out the truth about her identity.


Born inside a flower, she marvels at the world around her but quickly realises she doesn’t know what, where or who she is. She has no name and is lost and alone, with only a dream to fly like a butterfly. She is drawn to the warmth and excitement of a nearby animal party where bugs, spiders, toads, and mice are celebrating the End of Summer and Start of Winter, but the party is not what it seems. Can Thumbelina find the strength to stand up for herself as the animals bicker over her and will she discover the truth about who she really is?


The 60s influenced music will bring the whole show to life with original new songs guaranteed to get the audience singing and dancing enough to raise the theatre roof. The 2018 cast features many of CBeebies’ most popular actors and presenters including Justin Fletcher, Ben Faulks and Andy Day.
