The Elves and the Shoemaker


One good turn deserves another.

A poor shoemaker has only one pair of shoes left and not enough money to pay his rent. With the help of two mischievous Elves, he makes some unusual shoes that are very much appreciated and rewards the Elves in return.

A fun adaption of this Grimm’s tale is retold with the help of beautiful Elf puppets, objects and of course, lots of lovely Shoes!

Feedback from audiences:

“The children just loved that the Shoemaker was made from a shoe” – Balmullo Nursery

“Excellent – Much better than panto” – Audience at Perth Museum and Art Gallery
