Grimm’s Fairy Tale adapted for the stage by Mike Kenny

A tale of magic and mischief perfect for ages 3 – 7 and their family & friends

Once upon a time, there were two shoemakers who were very old and very poor. So poor they couldn’t even afford to buy each other Christmas presents. With no wood for the fire, and only one piece of leather left to make shoes, there was little festive cheer in the shoemakers shop.

But that night, just as the snow begins to drift down outside and the clock strikes midnight, two little Elves mysteriously appear on the workbench…

Live music, physical storytelling and plenty of Elf magic come together to tell this classic tale written for the stage by award winning Mike Kenny.

BSL Interpreted: Sun 13 December, 1.30pm
