TIN MAN: An epic new dance work for families comes to Mansfield this half term

Tin Man

Joss Arnott Dance presents a magical new retelling of a classic story, seen through the rusty eyes of the Tin Man and their journey to finding their heart and happiness.

The newly-created work is touring nationally in 2023 following two hugely successful tours in 2022. Catch it at Mansfield Palace Theatre with two performances (11am and 2pm) on Thursday 2 November.

A visually-stunning dance production for families and children aged seven and over, the show re-imagines the story of the Tin Man, the much-loved character’s encounters with the Witch in the deep dark wood, and the new friendships they form with a Scarecrow and a Lion along the way.

Told with brilliant humour and touching pathos, Tin Man entertains both children and adults alike with its enchanting storytelling, dramatic choreography, stunning costume and lighting designs, all accompanied by newly commissioned music by award-winning composer Anna Appleby.

The museum are running Tin Man themed craft sessions on 2 November, so why not make a day of it and visit our neighbours to make a mask to wear for the performance to impress the Lion and the Scarecrow?

If that’s not enough, after the show, don’t miss the chance to meet the cast and characters and get your picture taken with Tin Man, Lion and the Witch in the theatre foyer!
