The Steadfast Tin Soldier, A Story Ballet is a family-friendly show that delights everyone with an engaging and tender retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen tale. Enjoyable for all ages, its length of 1 hour and 15 minutes makes it a perfect introduction to the theater for young audience members!

Signing Exact English (SEE) has been incorporated into the choreography to make this performance accessible for those hard of hearing.
