ANNIE GET YOUR GUN - Village Theatre 2011


Number after number, co-choreographers Tomkins and his talented protégé Kristin [Holland] employ the sharp and

spirited cast expertly, from a slam-bang "There's No Business Like Show Business" through to a rip-roaring "Sun in the

Morning." There is a near Broadway-level of excitement in these numbers that is a thrill to see. 

- David Edward-Hughes, Talkin' Broadway


Sparkling choreography by Steve Tomkins and Kristin [Holland] - John James DeWitt, Broadway World


The focus is on Steve Tomkins’ and Kristin [Holland's] spirited choreography... The dancing, as fancy as Oakley’s shooting,

is used to communicate the Wild West show’s circus-esque atmosphere. - Warren Kagarise, Issaquah Press


Dance numbers are 100 percent time-period appropriate, bursting with energy and athletically breath

taking. Choreography by Steve Tomkins and Kristin [Holland] is kaleidoscopically dazzling. Patterns arrange and rearrange

in the wink of an eye. - Dale Burrows, The Weekly Herald




IRON CURTAIN  - Village Theatre 2011

Choreography by Kristin [Holland] is often convulsively funny - Miryam Gordon, Seattle Gay News

ANNE OF GREEN GABLES - Village Theatre 2010


Elaborate choreography by Steve Tomkins and Kristin [Holland], whose inventive staging was entertaining and effective at

showing the passage of time - Kristen Russell, ParentMap


Tomkins and Kristin [Holland] use droll choreography to suggest aging in the adolescent characters. The breathless romps

in the opening act lead to more form and grace in later scenes - Warren Kagarise, Issaquah Press


The choreography by Steve Tomkins and Kristin [Holland] was reminiscent of a light version of Seven Brides for Seven

Brothers and other traditional musicals.  What particularly struck me was how the choreography actually helped tell the

story, from the large group numbers down to the incredibly intimate and moving dance between Anne’s parents.

- Jim Carroll, CultureMob
