Sat 3 Jun, Guildhall Arts Centre family
Join Full House Theatre on a high jinks journey of joy and rediscovering of the past in their family show The Elves and The Shoemaker. In this topsy-turvy re-telling we meet Geoff, a lovable retired shoemaker. Now in his twilight years Geoff struggles with his memory and the patchwork of his past. One day at the bottom of his garden he is visited by two magical friends who help him to recall the old days in the shoe shop, reliving the hard times, the good times and the magic! The Elves help Geoff to remember his glorious past and eventually he realises that a little bit of elf magic is all he needs to give his wife the only thing she’s ever wanted, just in time for her 90th Birthday. The show features original toe-tapping music, laugh out loud characters, puppetry and even a little bit of real magic! Just like a comfy old slipper, The Elves and the Shoemaker is a story sure to make old and young alike feel all warm and cosy inside.
