About the Show
The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre presents a modern puppet retelling of three classic Hans Christian Andersen tales.
Set in Africa, China, and Central Park, 'The Princess, the Emperor, and the Duck' features contemporary takes on the classic fairy tales 'The Princess and the Pea,' 'The Emperor’s New Clothes,' and 'The Ugly Duckling.' These familiar stories are reinvented with handcrafted marionettes and scenery. Guided by a narrating Owl, audience members fly into each story and learn important life lessons still relevant today. Best for ages 3 to 9.
