THE STEADFAST TIN SOLDIER

THE STEADFAST TIN SOLDIER

November 1, 2019–January 26, 2020

Written and Directed by Ensemble Member Mary Zimmerman
From the Story by Hans Christian Andersen

True to his loyal and resolute nature, The Steadfast Tin Soldier returns! The Chicago Tribune calls Ensemble Member Mary Zimmerman’s gorgeous spectacle of music and movement “a four-star treat for all ages.” Hans Christian Andersen’s story about a little tin soldier who never gives up comes back to Lookingglass for a winter-time curtain call. The Chicago Reader trumpets this marvel of invention, beauty, and magical storytelling as “an absolute GIFT.” Don’t miss the triumphant return of Chicago’s newest Holiday tradition, The Steadfast Tin Soldier.

★★★★ It’s transformational, truly. Barely more than an hour long and does not use a lick of human speech. But this is a major new work, with the message that we don’t die, we merely change shape. It’s one holiday experience you don’t want to miss.”

Gloriously creative and terrifically engaging”

An absolute gift... Brings us hope, gratitude, and magic”

The most beautifully and meticulously crafted holiday show you’re likely to see.”

Emotional to the core... will enthrall you, whatever your age”

Like nothing you’ve ever seen”
