The kind shoemaker and his wife are very poor and only have one piece of leather left to make some shoes to sell. The shoemaker carefully cuts out the pieces of leather before going to bed, so he can make them into a pair of shoes in the morning. The next morning… what’s this? The pieces of leather are gone and, in their place, is the most beautiful pair of shoes in the world. The shoemaker and his wife sell the shoes, buy more leather, cut out the pieces ready for the next day and the same thing happens again… another pair of exquisite shoes. But who is making them? And what might they want in return? The Elves and The Shoemaker is a magical, festive retelling of the much-loved Brothers Grimm fairytale about kindness and the joy we get from helping each other. Following in the traditions of previous productions The Princess and the Frog and Town Mouse and Country Mouse, expect a show filled with fun and warmth as well as music, singing and plenty of chances to join in.
