THEATRE PREVIEW: Elves and the Shoemakers at Sheffield Crucible

CLASSIC fairytale The Elves and the Shoemakers comes to life in South Yorkshire this Christmas.

The Brothers Grimm’s timeless tale is being staged at the Crucible Theatre’s studio stage until Saturday, January 4. 

Once upon a time, there were two shoemakers who were very old and very poor — so poor they couldn’t 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 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 and an adventure begins.

With live music, puppetry and lots of theatre magic, this fairytale could be the perfect Christmas treat for little elves.

Tickets cost £12 and are available from Sheffield Theatres’ box office in-person, by phone on 0114 249 6000 or online at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk.
