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+.

Rumpelstiltskin & The Wheel of Fortune

Poor Polly Buckwheat, the Miller’s daughter, is in a bit of a pickle!  If she doesn’t turn a roomful of straw into gold by morning, the greedy King will turn a bit nasty.  But should she accept the kind help of an eccentric dwarf who mysteriously appears in her prison cell?

 

Of all the fairytale characters, Rumpelstiltskin has got to be the most mixed up.  He is helpful yet demanding;  secretive yet nosy;  short yet owning a name as long as his beard.  Not surprisingly, this story of transformation will make you laugh and gasp at the same time!

 

Using its trademark puppets, music, storytelling and transforming sets, Widdershins aims to create gold on stage with this new version of the Grimm’s classic tale.
