ELVES AND THE SHOEMAKER

Genre: Kids
by The Brothers Grimm and adapted for the stage by Kristin Walter, dir. by Laura Stevens

Grimmsville takes on a contemporary, urban beat in this adaptation of the well-loved Brothers' Grimm tale. A fairy tale doesn't have to be "old fashioned" just ask Eric, the shoemaker, as he tries to sell his shoes in a world that is clearly and quickly passing him by. His loyal wife and doting, but clever, daughter love him dearly, but they know something must change to keep their family financially afloat. Could they ever imagine that help would come to them from a couple of homeless elves? All ages will enjoy MCT's comedic adaptation of this timeless tale a tale of giving without expectations, of being accountable for one's actions and, most importantly, for remembering the true love of a family.
