Musical Puppet Show Thumbelina arrives in Perth for this Christmas only from 16 - 22 December at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Thumbelina will bring her friends to have their Christmas in Perth. You will meet the clever Mr ladybug, his children and the kind birds that help Thumbelina to find her way home. Don't miss out, book now!

Thumbelina was based upon Andersen's Fairy Tales. The story tells of a flower that turns into a little girl and becomes Mrs Anna's daughter. People call her Thumbelina as she used to be a tiny flower. Thumbelina and Mrs Anna lived happily together in a village with other animals and flowers.

One day, Thumbelina went missing, causing Mrs Anna to be very worried. This story tells of the adventure Thumbelina goes through to return safely home with the help of a ladybug, bird and other friends she meets whilst lost.

The story is told with handmade puppets along with Modern lighting and choreography design. This is a show that you can give your friends as a family gift for Christmas or provide for an entertaining afternoon catch-up for family and friends. Photos with Santa will be available on the day.]
