A new production coming to the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds is set to be the perfect half-term treat for youngsters.

The Elves and the Shoemaker combines wonderful, whimsical storytelling with puppets and plenty of surprises, and it enjoys a five-performance run from May 26-28.

The play follows the fortunes of shoemarker Sam Lacey, who, sat in his kitchen workshop, in a high rise block of flats, makes terrible shoes and tries to sell them on-line. The only problem is nobody wants to buy them...not at any price.

Then one magical morning Sam wakes up to discover a pair of the most amazing shoes he’s ever seen, lying on the kitchen worktop. How on earth did they get there?

The play is performed by the Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company and performances are suitable for children aged three and older.

Tickets are available from the Theatre Royal box office on 01284 769505.
