  • ​Mike Kenny

    playwright

    Mike Kenny is one of England’s leading playwrights. He specializes in theatre for young audiences. He has won numerous awards for his plays including being the first ever recipient of The Children’s Award for playwriting for children in 2000, as well as an Olivier Award for his adaptation of The Railway Children. His plays are still widely performed throughout England and the world. Kenny began experimenting with story adaptation when he worked at the Leeds Playhouse in Education. He worked with government and education authorities to provide access to plays for children of all backgrounds. He enjoys adapting fairytales because they provide a root problem that the children must solve. He believes that theatre for young audiences should take them seriously as audience members and should present them with situations they may or may not encounter.

  • ​Hans Christian Andersen

    Author

    Hans Christian Andersen is famous for writing over 160 fairy tales, including The Ugly Duckling, The Snow Queen, The Little Match Girl, The Princess and the Pea, and The Little Mermaid, have become literary classics enjoyed by children and adults the world over. Andersen was born on April 2, 1805, in Odense, Denmark to a very poor family. His father, who died when Andersen was only 11, would entertain him with old Danish legends and stories from The Arabian Nights, which influenced his writings as an adult. In 1867 he returned to Odense to be honored by his country. He published his last fairy tales in 1872, and after a long illness, he died in Copenhagen on August 4, 1875.
