“Hans Christian Andersen Storytelling” - There was once a storyteller who captivated his audiences with his wonderful stories about fantastic creatures and characters. He held them spellbound as he snipped elaborate designs with long scissors from a sheet of paper as he told his tales. His stories became popular all around the world. His name was Hans Christian Andersen.
What was it like to hear H.C. Andersen himself tell his wonderful tales?
Now audiences around the world can have the experience of hearing Andersen’s lively tales, told as he would tell them: with humorous comments, lively actions, different voices, and amazing cut paper designs – made as the stories unfold. Randel McGee portrays Andersen in period costume, with a convincing and consistent accent, and while making amazing paper-cut designs.
