Anyone six years and up will be captivated by this dynamic visual arts performance portraying the story of the one-legged Tin Soldier who goes to incredible extremes in a bid to win the affections of his beloved Tissue Paper Ballerina.
After his world is thrown into turmoil by the mischievous Red Goblin, will he be able to find his true love again?
