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."

Don't see it if you're looking for adult theater. You'll love seeing this through a child's eyes, but the target audience is not adults.
