Thumbelina: A Little Musical

American Repertory Theater, December 2019

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Julia Riew

Thumbelina: A Little Musical – a new musical with book, music, and lyrics by Julia Riew – is an adaptation of the beloved story by Hans Christian Andersen of a courageous girl who forges her path, embraces her differences and finds her place. Determined to meet someone her own size, 3-inch tall Thumbelina steps outside her garden walls for the first time and embarks on a great adventure with Julian, prince of the fairies. Little does she know, she’s about to discover a world of danger, secrets, surprises, and friendship.
