Theatre of Widdershins presents
The Elves and the Shoemaker

at Compass Theatre
The Elves and the Shoemaker

Shooooooooooooooes ....! Ah, new shoes .... Delightful on the feet. Soft, dancing shoes; swarthy pirate shoes; silver buckle and silken soles. No one makes shoes like an elf.

This well known and well loved tale - made popular by the Ladybird Classic - has been re-heeled by Theatre of Widdershins in their own inimitable style. Beautifully crafted set and puppets, sublime music, a kaleidoscope of miniature shoes and a comic mouse all make this show a magical must-see at Compass Theatre this October half term.

Suitable for everyone aged 3+, this performance runs for 50 minutes, with no interval.

Wrap-Up! To increase ventilation at busy times, the theatres doors will be opened, so you may want to bring a blanket and a mask, to warm noses and help keep others safe.
