Musical Theatre Of Anthem Presents THUMBELINA

Musical Theatre of Anthem announces a virtual production of Thumbelina, a sung-through musical based on the classic Hans Christian Anderson fairytale. All youth between the ages of 9-18 will be cast for this production. European Creative Team of Lyricist Maxine Gallagher and Composer Chris Seed are generously donating back their royalties to MTA so we can bring Thumbelina to you! This is a virtual production with virtual auditions and performances.

Told through the eyes of a swallow, Thumbelina is the story of a tiny girl who is lost in a big world. She goes through many scary adventures while searching for people like her. She overcomes them all, growing braver throughout the story and eventually finds her people, the flower angels, and discovers that they've been looking for her too. The writers wanted to create a positive tale that shows it is possible to find your own way in the world, if you don't give up. And they wanted to tell it through beautiful music, heartfelt lyrics, touches of humor and the potential for spectacular imagery.
