About The Steadfast Tin Soldier

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.
