On December 19, 20 and 21, Fort Wayne Youtheatre will present "Steadfast Tin Soldier," Hans Christian Andersen’s heartwarming story of a toy soldier’s struggle to win the heart of his ballerina true love. These performances will be particularly special because the Youtheatre opened its doors with the same show, its very first production, way back in 1934!
The Auer Black Box Theatre will be transformed into a Christmas toy box, complete with holiday carolers. Patrons will also enjoy an original dance by the Fort Wayne Ballet! As a special treat, Sunday's show will also include a performance by the Fort Wayne Children's Choir Chamber Singers.
Friday, December 19 at 7 p.m. (Pre-Show Party at Artlink at 6 p.m.)
Saturday, December 20 at 11 a.m. & 2 p.m.
Sunday, December 21 at 2 p.m.Tickets
Call (260) 422-4226
After you take in a show, why not do something extra special? Hop on a horse-drawn carriage ride and enjoy the holiday lights downtown!
This is a special year for the Youtheatre. 2014 marks its 80th anniversary! This makes it one of the oldest children's theaters in the United States. Have a look at its history here.
