Details

Adapted by Katherine Chandler

Clara the shoemaker is very poor and only has one piece of leather left to make some shoes to sell. She carefully cuts out the pieces of leather before going to bed, ready to 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. Clara sells the shoes, buys more leather and cuts 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.

“A gentle, friendly and uplifting tale” Mumsnet (Town Mouse and Country Mouse)

“Lovingly created theatre for small children” The Stage (Town Mouse and Country Mouse)

The Elves and The Shoemaker is a Relaxed Production

Performances of The Elves and The Shoemaker have no flashes and bangs and the characters even come on stage to introduce themselves at the start of each show. In addition, if you have particular sensory needs, like to get up and move about or just want more space and freedom and access to a Chill Out Space we highly recommend our two Relaxed Performances which take place on Wednesday 19 December at 10.30am and Saturday 29 December at 1.15pm.
