A great skating contest is announced, and the winner will receive a shiny pair of silver skates. But will Hans and his sister, with their wooden skates, be able to compete against children who own steel blades? Set in 19th century Holland, this new production celebrates the importance of grit and determination, the value of generosity, and the thrill of flying down the ice on a pair of skates.

Most enjoyed by families with children ages 6 and older.
