The Elves & The Shoemaker

The Elves and the Shoemaker

Adapted by Joanna Carrick

Our Christmas show for 2017!

It’s the 1st of December. The countdown to Christmas is on in Elvedon, everyone’s scrambling to find the perfect gift, and all the shops are heaving…well almost all of them. Lovelace’s Boots & Shoes hasn’t seen much action lately…but Elvira is hopeful…there’s still a few weeks left, right? Everyone needs shoes…and they’re the only shoe shop in town.

Elvira is determined to change their fate, and dreams of the perfect Christmas…and making an honest man out of Englebert, but it’s going to take some serious help from two very special visitors to turn things around! Together, can Elvira, Frank and the Elves work their magic to save the shop, overcome the odds and make all of Elvira’s wedding dreams come true…All before Christmas Day?

You’ve heard the story of The Elves & The Shoemaker, but this production sprinkled lots of Red Rose Chain magic all over this timeless Brothers Grimm tale. A feel-good love story full of shoes, shenanigans and something for everyone!

“Top marks!
Imagination-stirring”

Anne Morley-Priestman

“Delightful, uplifting Christmas play”

The Stage

“An uplifting feel-good start to the Christmas season. We loved it so much that we gave it five stars (shoes).”

Ipswich Waterfront

“Everything you want from a seasonal show. Funny, charming, clever, heartwarming and at times wonderfully anarchic with adorable, deplorable and outlandish characters and loads for all ages to enjoy.”

“Quite simply the best Christmas show yet by Red Rose Chain. An outstanding production. Christmas in Ipswich is officially here. The perfect fit for children and adults.”

BBC Radio Suffolk

“The Elves & The Shoemaker – Red Rose Chain Christmas Magic at its best. Joanna Carrick delivers once again.”
