Atlantic Coast Theatre for Youth brings the toy room to life in their adaptation of this classic Hans Christian Andersen tale. A toy soldier with a damaged leg falls in love with a music box ballerina. He must overcome his limitations to save her from the Evil Renegade Rat, who wants her as his bride. This original “toy story” is perfect for the holidays. Creatively adapted for children grades K-5, this production is a winter adventure sure to captivate audiences of all ages.
