Elephant Ensemble Theater Brings New Production to Bronx Hospitals
Date:2/6/2008

Elephant Ensemble Theater Performs Thumbelina for Kids at Montefiore

NEW YORK, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Elephant Ensemble Theater will bring their 2008 production of Thumbelina: The Story of a Brave Little Girl to the Bronx when they perform on March 1st at The Children's Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center.

This represents Elephant's mission to bring free theater to children in New York City and outer-borough hospitals who do not have significant programming.

Elephant Ensemble presents valuable role models for the children and leaves them with a heightened sense of morale.

Their current show is a Thumbelina for modern times, a spunky little girl who, once lost, fights her way back home to safety. The production utilizes many classic children's theater techniques such as audience participation, best illustrated when Thumbelina drives off an on-coming storm by blowing the clouds away with the help of her audience.

Thumbelina debuted in October 2007 on Mt. Sinai Hospital's KidZone TV, performing in front of a blue screen, where the play was then broadcasted live into children's rooms. At Montefiore on March 1st they will perform in a playroom in front of a live audience.

Written and Directed by Creative Director Liza Lentini, the cast of Thumbelina includes Mollie Lohinski (as Thumbelina), Christopher VanJura, Cheri Haller, and Elephant's Managing Director Christine Seisler.

"We're excited to finally be going to the Bronx," says Lentini. "We're a company of hard-working, honest New Yorkers, and that's what the Bronx represents to us."
