Based on the fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen

“There were once five and twenty tin soldiers, all identical, except for one. He wore the smartest red and blue uniform imaginable, but unlike the others stood proudly, on a single leg. You see, he was the last to be made out of the old tin pot, and there wasn’t enough tin left to finish him properly. It is this very Tin Soldier who is to become famous...”

The Show

Based on the fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen, this magical story brought to life by a talented ensemble of performers who use a mixture of bunraku style puppetry, object manipulation, music, mask and physical theatre to take us on an unforgettable journey.

We follow the Tin Soldier as he meets a beautiful paper Ballerina and falls in love. But as we all know, true love never runs smoothly and we watch as the Tin Soldier goes on an adventure that would melt even the bravest of hearts.

The story comes to life on a simple set, from which the characters are able to leap out, and engage with our audience in an impressive feat of ensemble storytelling. A wonderfully visual feast; full of surprises, twists and turns, the show will charm and delight audiences of all ages.

Powerfully moving and imaginative, get caught up in this wonderful story about overcoming adversity and rising above the challenges of life.
