A hard working , kindhearted shoemaker called Stan and his wife Bet have fallen on some hard times. Struggling to sell shoes means they don’t know if they will be able to make rent by christmas eve. Will they get to keep their shop which has been in their family for generations or will their landlord Mrs Perkins get what she wants and take back the shop? With a little bit of magic and the help of the pixies who come to visit at night they may just make it!
A few familiar faces from fairytales may just make an appearane to buy some sparkly shoes or knee boots that may just change their lives.
Cahoots NI have put together another fantastic show enjoyed by adults and children alike. By adding their own twist on the classic tale of The Elves and the Shoemaker with magic tricks that will leave you wondering how they did it (I am still trying to figure it out). Some fantastic singing and dance moves that put me to shame it is sure to be enjoyed by all the family.
The show isn’t just about the singing, dancing and magic ticks, but puts across a very poinient message that both children and some adults can learn from. Someone who has nothing still tries to be kind and help others, while the person who has everything is greedy and wants what she wants isn’t so kindhearted but they can still change with the right help.
Some of the cast greeted the audience after the show and have their photographs taken with the children which certainly left a lasting impression Kylene as i’m sure it did with other children.
A fantastic show to take the family to which will help get you into the christmas spirit. Kylene loved it so much she wants to go back again with her brother and sisters before christmas.
The show is running from now until January 6th in The Mac theatre, tickets range from £25-£12.50 per adult and £10 per child. Suitable for all ages. It is 1 hour and 50 minutes with a short interval. Click here for more information and to book tickets.
