Hans Christian Andersen Online Edition
Experience the many tales of Hans Christian Andersen in this 20-minute online version of the Frank Loesser classic!

We may not be back in the rehearsal room or on the stage quite yet, but you can still rehearse, perform, and celebrate the magic of musical theatre with Hans Christian Andersen Online Edition. A virtual musical storybook, this 20-minute version of the Frank Loesser classic is specifically designed to be rehearsed, produced, and performed remotely on the internet, providing your cast and creatives the opportunity to connect with each other while delighting your digital audiences.

Everything you need to produce Hans Christian Andersen Online Edition is delivered digitally, including a Director's Guide (with instructional processes, tips, and suggestions), the Actor's Script, Accompaniment Tracks, and more. Watch the world premiere below and take a peek at the Director's Guide and Actor's Script samples.

Synopsis

Hans Christian Andersen Online Edition takes us to the vibrant city of Copenhagen, where a young boy named Christian begins his studies at the Royal Academy. A natural storyteller, Christian charms and inspires others with his stories while learning to believe in himself. 

Featuring the beloved fairytales Thumbelina, The Ugly Duckling, and The Little Mermaid, Hans Christian Andersen Online Edition is a perfect show for young storytellers. With a flexible cast size, groups both big and small can put on this show.
