In this popular ongoing children’s series, some of New York’s most famous storytellers from the Hans Christian Andersen Storytelling Center present exciting fairy and folk tales and fantastic adventures from Scandinavia and the far north.
In “The Ugly Duckling Meets Ostrich and Lark,” award-winning storytellers Therese Folkes Plair and Melissa Heckler open our fall series with fabulous stories from Denmark and Namibia.
All families are welcome; however, the stories are original folk tales with narratives more suited for children ages 5 and up.
About the Hans Christian Andersen Storytellers
Since 1957, on Saturdays during the summer, New York City’s children have clustered around the Hans Christian Andersen statue near Conservatory Pond in Central Park to hear his and others’ fairy tales, folk stories, and stories told by a dedicated group of professional storytellers. When the weather turns cooler, the Hans Christian Andersen Storytellers bring their tales to Scandinavia House.
