The Little Match Girl-Cultural and Artistic Exchange

(Limited engagement in support of UNICEF)

The iconic story of The Little Match Girl, by Hans Christian Anderson, comes to life in this new musical adaptation. As theatre offers escapism, so does the enchanted imagination of the little match girl, alluringly captured in this retelling of her tale. 

We are proud to announce that the Off-Broadway cast will be joined by a talented group of young student artists who are traveling from China to perform exclusively in this special limited engagement. Each of these young performers has been specifically chosen to collaborate in a professional NYC theatre environment alongside Broadway talent. Armed with matchsticks and music these young performers will return home with confidence, hope, and an experience of a lifetime.

The little match girl brings us along in her discovery of a better place in this timeless classic. The Little Match Girl is you; she is me; she is all of us. Her experience reminds us of where we started, what truly matters, and that we are all family. The Chinese children joining our cast truly embody the spirit of the story and believe completely in its message. This artistic and cultural exchange will provide a magical theatre experience in support of UNICEF; helping children in crisis around the world. Every child deserves a chance.
