Family Entertainment to Educate and Inspire
Thumbelina with The Oregon Shadow Theater
Saturday, May 23, 2015 :: 4 - 5 pm
The Kim Maxwell Studio
226 W. Ojai Ave. #102, Ojai
Thumbelina is one of Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen’s most delightful characters, a miniature girl born from a flower who has to find her own way in the world of nature. In this OST production Thumbelina journeys through a series of natural habitats to discover her home in the land of the flower fairies. The visual design of this colorful shadow play is drawn from Art Nouveau, the decorative art movement of the late 1800s which is characterized by its flowing organic lines and its nature themes. While the plot of the play follows Andersen’s story, the script supports a comic sub text linking music of the 1960’s and ’70s to Thumbelina’s desire to find her home in a land of flowers. The live music is performed on hammer dulcimer, electric guitar, and an assortment of percussion and sound effects devices. Oregon Shadow Theatre’s production of “Thumbelina” has been awarded the UNIMA-USA Citation of Excellence in the Art of Puppetry.
