Grimm’s elves and shoemaker go online in fun new slant on fairytale
When you have had a bad day and nothing is going right what you need are some elves to help you out.
That is what happens in this modern retelling of the much-loved Grimm’s Fairy Tale The Elves and the Shoemaker at the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds from May 26 to 28.
Sat in his kitchen workshop, Sam Lacey makes terrible shoes and tries to sell them online but they are so bad that no-one really wants them, not even his next door neighbour.
Then one night, two tiny visitors climb in through the window and start cutting, stitching and gluing. From then on, Sam’s life is never quite the same again.
Here, the story is told with stunning puppets, music and surprises aplenty for everyone older than three.
Tickets are £8.50 to £12.50 from the Box Office on 01284 769505 or at www.theatreroyal.org
