Project Description

The Elves and the Shoemaker

This Christmas, fairytale characters are stepping out of their story books and into a new adventure, featuring original music, magic and dazzling special effects.

Based on the much loved Grimm’s Fairy Tale, ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ puts a magical twist on a classic tale in this new adaption from the MAC Belfast and Cahoots NI.

It’s the story about the kind-hearted cobbler who gets a helping hand from a party of nocturnal pixies.  Expect laugh-out-loud capers and keep your eyes out for some of fairyland’s best known characters who just might pop up to make it Belfast’s funniest, festive family show
