A magical retelling of a classic story, seen through the rusty eyes of the Tin Man as he journeys to find his heart and happiness. This captivating new production reimagines how this much-loved character would have coped against the Wicked Witch in the deep dark wood and discovers the new personalities they might have met along the way. With enchanting storytelling, bold choreography, stunning costumes and lighting, plus a newly commissioned score by award-winning composer Anna Appleby.
