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

 

In its own retro-Broadway universe, "Iron Curtain" puts on quite a show — most laudably in the splashy, stylishly performed song-and-dance numbers choreographed by Tomkins and Kristin [Holland] - Misha Berson, The Seattle Times

 

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.
