A normal day at the park becomes so much more when a young girl gets swept away into four of Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairy tales: The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Nightingale and The Ugly Duckling.

NYCCT invites you to discover why some fairy tales never get old. Inspired by four of Hans Christian Andersen’s most famous stories.

Adapted for the Stage by Barbara Zinn Krieger
Devised and Directed by Adrienne Kapstein
