Family theatre fun with fairy tale classic

The Lilliput Players Children’s Theatre Company will be performing their new show ‘The Elves And The Shoemaker’ at the Nassau Theatre in Newlands during the April school holidays. The production will run from Monday, March 31, until Saturday, April 5, at 10am daily.
The magical fairytale takes place in Cape Town where a Shoemaker lives with his wife. They are very poor and are worried that they will not be able to sell any shoes. Two young elves pay them a visit and make it the best time they have ever had. Audiences will get to see the elves turn pieces of leather into beautiful shoes and join the shoemaker and his wife for their birthday party.

‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ is one of the world`s best loved fairytales and is adapted and directed by Elton John Duffy, who has been producing children’s theatre for the past 20 years. This is a classic fairytale with a modern twist. The show includes popular songs from Black Eyed Peas, Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, Gwen Stefani and LMFAO. The production stars Carina Karcher, Grant Jacobs, Amy Trout, Shaun Klaasen and Rosanna Minchella.
