Cast aside by his new owner, defective and unloved, a one-legged tin soldier spies a beautiful paper ballerina from across the playroom – and falls hopelessly and instantly in love with her. Shrugging off the grim warnings of a jealous jack-in-the-box, he valiantly breaks rank from his tin barracks to woo his papery sweetheart. A raucous adventure unfolds, featuring a pair of love-starved rats, a murderous porcelain doll and a mean-looking fish.

Imaginations young and old will be captured by the family-friendly adaptation of The Steadfast Tin Soldier, enchantingly reinvented through puppetry, live music, song and shadow.
