ANNIE GET YOUR GUN - Village Theatre 2011

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.
