The classic story is told as seen through the rusty eyes of the Tin Man on their journey to finding their heart and happiness.

This captivating new dance production, for families with children aged seven-plus, explores how this much-loved character would have coped against the Wicked Witch in the deep dark wood, and discovers the friends he might have met along the way.

Brilliantly humorous and touching, Tin Man will enthral children and adults alike with its charming storytelling, bold dancing and music by award-winning composer Anna Appleby, performed live by music ensemble Psappha.

It will also introduce kids to the world of contemporary dance.

Tin Man will be performed each day, at 12 noon and 3pm, at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre from Friday to Sunday, June 3 to 5.

Running time is 50 minutes, with no interval.
