The Little Blue Engine dreams of someday being able to pull real railroad cars, but the overbearing Silver Engine, who runs the train yard, thinks Little Blue is too small to ever pull the Piney Vale Express. Although Little Blue's determination is strong, it begins to look like her dreams will never be realized. But then one day another train is injured and can't pull the Piney Vale Express. Suddenly everything depends on Little Blue. Will she pull it off? Filled with uplifting songs and a story about conquering fears and reaching goals, The Little Engine That Could is a perfect first introduction to the theater for children.
