Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen
All the classic fairytales from one of the most adored storytellers of all time - in one show.

Countless generations of children have been raised on the fairytales of Hans Christian Andersen. From "The Ugly Duckling" to "The Little Mermaid," these stories have sparked many young imaginations for centuries. Now with music by legendary composer Frank Loesser, Hans Christian Andersen is a musical storybook that brings the timeless tales (and the man who created them) to life onstage. 

A struggling cobbler in Denmark, Hans Christian Andersen is better at making stories than shoes. As he discovers his potential as a storyteller and writer, he ultimately gets the help he needs from the people who love him to make a future for himself.

A family-friendly show with generous ensemble roles for both adults and children, Hans Christian Andersen is a timeless treasure. It is based on the 1952 film starring Danny Kaye and features classic songs such as "I'm Hans Christian Andersen," "Thumbelina," "Anywhere I Wander," and more!
