The Elves & The Shoemaker And Other Stories...

Three children wander through a dark forest. They are hungry, cold and lost. Stopping for a rest, they decide to share some of the weird and wonderful stories they have heard along the way… Find out what happened to the jolly old shoemaker, discover the fate of the gingerbread man and laugh in astonishment at the emperor’s new clothes!

A magical new show from Silly Boys, creators of The Tallest Horse On Earth. The Elves & The Shoemaker is a typically bonkers and heartwarming take on some of the world’s favourite fairytales. Reimagined using puppetry, live music and a huge dose of silliness! The perfect treat for all the family!

Co-produced by Colchester Arts Centre, The Elves & The Shoemaker completed a hugely successful 51-date national tour during autumn 2014, before a 21-date seek-out run at Colchester Arts Centre Christmas 2015.

This show was supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
