The Steadfast Tin Soldier, A Story Ballet

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!

Colorful hand-tailored costumes, locally designed and hand-painted scenery, a cast of fifty young dancers and an ensemble of musicians come together to present this charming and heartwarming holiday dance event. Signing Exact English (SEE) has been incorporated into the choreography to make this performance accessible for those hard of hearing.
