Thumbelita: Sensory Friendly Performance
April 2, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
There was once a girl so small that she could float on a lily pad and ride on the back of a dragonfly. Based on the Hans Christian Andersen classic, BCT’s new adaptation by critically-acclaimed playwright Lucinda McDermott is infused with Spanish language learning opportunities. Follow the adventures of Thumbelita: a tiny person in a giant world reminding us all that good things truly do come in small packages!
