In a few weeks, the Arden Theatre Company will present the World Premiere of Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates by playwright, director and screenwriter Laura Eason. Adapted from an 1865 my Mary Mapes Dodge and featuring
original music by Jay Ansill, Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates transports the audience to 19th century Holland where children compete to win a gorgeous pair of shiny new silver skates. The ensemble cast features Rachel Camp, Lauren Hirte, Ciji Prosser, Brian Ratcliffe, Matteo Scammell, Ed Swidey and Steven A. Wright.
