The Elves & The Shoemaker

Shooooooooooooooes ....! Ah, new shoes .... Delightful on the feet. Soft, dancing shoes; swarthy pirate shoes; silver buckle and silken soles. No one makes shoes like an elf.

This well known and well loved tale - made popular by the Ladybird Classic - has been re-heeled by Theatre of Widdershins in their own inimitable style. Beautifully crafted set and puppets, sublime music, a kaleidoscope of
miniature shoes and a comic mouse all make this show a magical must-see.


Suitable for everyone aged 3+.
