In 19th-century Holland, teenage Hans Brinker works to support his family after his father is severely injured. The bitter cold of winter is suddenly made bright by the fact that the national race for silver skates will be held in his town. If only Hans and his little sister Gretel can get real skates instead of their wooden ones, they too might compete. Who knows? They might even win.

Originally commissioned and produced in 1996 by the New York State Theatre Institute, this adaptation of Mary Mapes Dodge’s beloved novel is presented in honor of the 90th birthday of its composer, world-famous pianist Byron Janis.
