Thumbelina play script adaptation of the
Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale cover Let your students build their own self esteem while at the same time seeing this classic fairy tale come to life in their own performance. Thumbelina, in true fairy tale fashion, takes the good-hearted girl and, after a series of difficult trials and adventures, lets us know that everything does work out for the best in the end.

Thumbelina is a tiny girl, the result of a wish by her parents for a child of their own. Her happiness in her home is interrupted by selfish and unscrupulous characters who, after kidnapping her from her own little house in her parents' dwelling, set her on a series of adventures from which she learns a great deal, meets some unsavory and comical characters, and eventually ends up marrying the handsome prince... who is her own size.

This 10-15 minute script features 1 major narrator role (which can be divided amongst several actors), 1 lead female role (Thumbelina), 4 sizeable female roles, and 4 male roles, and any mumber of wonderful supporting characters, which can be any number (some with lines) to accommodate the desired size of the cast. This script is excellent for elementary or middle school casts from about 3rd grade or older and works well for adults, too. The hard copy version is 8 1/2" x 11" in size with spiral binding (which lets it lie flat on a desk, when opened) and color cover.

Here's one of our satisfied customers:
