With live music, puppetry and lots of theatre magic, Grimm’s classic fairy tale The Elves and the Shoemakers comes to life this Christmas as a festive treat for all the family in York Theatre Royal Studio.

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 festival spirit in the shoemakers’ shop.

But one night, just as the snow begins to fall outside and the clock strikes midnight, two mischievous elves appear at the window…

The Elves and the Shoemakers follows the success of last year’s Studio Christmas production for children The Book of Dragons, directed by York Theatre Royal Associate Director Juliet Forster.

The cast includes Niall Costigan, Peyvand Sadeghian and, of course, some mischievous elves, made by Peter O’Rourke.

The Elves and the Shoemakers is at York Theatre Royal Studio from 11th December 2018 to 5th January 2019. Book online at yorktheatreroyal.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01904 623568.
