For the young and young at heart, this performance by storyteller Madelaine Smart offers a new family-friendly adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classical fairytale. Featuring original music by Alex Cottrell, the story is suitable for all ages, but especially recommended for children aged 4–11. 

The Liverpool Players, established by Professor Sarah Peverley, specialise in performing early drama and literature to public audiences.

As this event is free, not everyone who registers for tickets will attend. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
