A wonderful way to share the spirit of the season
Talking Broadway

In this timeless story, Hans and Gretel Brinker strive to provide for their family and prove their own worth by entering a local speedskating contest – first prize is a pair of gleaming silver skates! The play culminates with a spectacular St. Nicholas Day race on the stage of The Grandel Theatre stage.

Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates celebrates generosity, helping others and is an exhilarating tale of courage and determination.

The original novel by Mary Mapes Dodge has been in print since 1865 and is credited with popularizing the sport of speedskating in the United States. Metro Theater Company will be presenting a modern interpretation of this timeless tale adapted by House of Cards screenwriter Laura Eason.
