Part of: Easter Holidays at Storyhouse, Accessible Performances


Audio Description [AD] available

Coming to Storyhouse this Easter holiday: Joss Arnott Dance presents a magical new retelling of a classic story for all the family, seen through the rusty eyes of the Tin Man and their journey to finding their heart and happiness.  

This visually stunning dance production for families and children aged 7+ explores a re-imagined story of this much-loved character’s encounters with the Witch in the deep dark wood, and the new friendships the Tin Man forms with a Scarecrow and a Lion along the way.   

Told with brilliant humour and touching pathos, TIN MAN entertains both children and adults alike with its enchanting storytelling, dramatic choreography, stunning costume and lighting designs, all accompanied by newly commissioned music by award-winning composer Anna Appleby.

Join us 30-minutes before the show and get creative with a free TIN MAN colouring-in activity in The Kitchen, under the big screen.
