Summer Stock Austin and Theatre-for-All present The Steadfast Tin Soldier, July 24 – August 13 in the Rollins Studio Theatre.

From the creative minds of Allen Robertson and Damon Brown of the “Biscuit Brothers” comes a brand-new musical adventure full of family fun, thrills, musical romance, and unforgettable characters! Based on the classic fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, THE STEADFAST TIN SOLDIER is the story of Lucas, a tin soldier made with only one leg, who dreams of becoming a ‘real’ soldier. When Rosalind, the ballerina princess who hopes to restore fairness to the kingdom, becomes mysteriously ill, Lucas must risk everything and journey into the perilous world beyond the workshop to find a cure for his beloved princess before time runs out.

Please note: Due to limited seating and popular performance, if you are not at the theatre ten minutes after curtain, your seats may be given away.

About Summer Stock Austin

Now entering its 12th season, there isn’t any other program in the country quite like Austin’s own SUMMER STOCK AUSTIN. From performing to designing and building sets, these high school and college students from across the country learn about every part of a professional theatre company–all the while working side-by-side with local and national theatre professionals. High school students learn from college students who learn from professionals. Performers and technicians are picked based on their demonstrated talent, promise and character. The “company” rehearses for three weeks to mount three fully produced musicals in the Rollins Theatre at the Long Center. The program is supported by ticket sales and through the generous donations of arts supporters.
