About the Show: The internationally acclaimed Bits ‘N Pieces Puppet Theatre returns to NFC's Van H. Priest Auditorium to perform ”Princess Thimbelina," a lively and colorful musical production for young audiences featuring towering nine-foot-tall dancing puppets, live actress Holli Rubin, and a host of other singing and dancing characters. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen, Bits N Pieces creatively reimagines the classic fairy tale of Princess Thimbelina, the little girl no bigger than your thumb. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF is the underlying message as Thimbelina and her menagerie of animal friends find happiness.

The CLASSROOM ACTIVITY GUIDE includes classroom activities and children’s activity pages for teachers to utilize and share with students.
