The Tin Soldier

An enchanting festive production based on the Hans Christian Anderson classic tale brought to the stage by acclaimed children's theatre company Peut-être this December. It’s Christmas and a newly minted tin soldier stands on a single leg, having been the last one cast from an old tin spoon. Nearby, he spies a paper ballerina, also standing on one leg, and the soldier falls in love. But the course of true love cannot run smooth and the soldier falls into an adventure to test and melt the bravest of hearts. Peut-être Theatre create work for young audiences that is interactive and accessible through its use of the visual, physical and musical. The company’s previous productions include This is a That, The Bug and the Butterfly, Draw Me A Bird, Clunk and Dare to Sea.
