Have a piece of paper and a pen ready when the show starts. Pippi and friends will help you create your very own Mr. Nilsson!

Scandinavian American Theater Company and Scandinavia House present their first ever, live digital play reading for children and families, celebrating the 75th anniversary of Pippi Longstocking, one of the most timeless and iconic characters of children’s literature in Scandinavia and beyond.

Pippi Longstocking, a free-spirited nine-year old and the strongest girl in the world, moves into the abandoned Villa Villekulla with her horse and pet monkey, Mr. Nilsson. Without a mother and with an absent, sea-faring pirate father, Pippi befriends the neighbor’s children, Tommy and Annika—and they, like the rest of the town, soon learn that Pippi is a girl who likes to do things her own way.

The reading was performed live on Saturday, November 28 at 1 pm. We also created an interactive activity guide for kids and parents to throw their own Pippi Party—all in the comfort of their own homes!
