The Elves and the Shoemaker

Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company

Sam Lacey makes shoes that are out of this world.

His imagination is huge but his shoe-making business is a disaster! Why would anyone buy a pair of Banana Skin slippers or spend money on shoes for a spider?! Even his neighbour Belinda can’t get him to see sense. Then, one night, two tiny green visitors climb into his kitchen and start stitching and cutting and snipping and gluing… Sam Lacey is about to get the surprise of a lifetime!

This hilarious re-telling of the much-loved classic tale from the inescapably inventive Stuff and Nonsense is a total delight for all the family, full of wit, charm and surprising puppetry. Stuff and Nonsense return to The Berry Theatre with another treat following popular shows Puppet Panto, The Gingerbread Man, The Enormous Turnip and The Emperor’s New Clothes.

Suitable for all the family, from ages 3 and up!

Praise for Stuff and Nonsense's previous shows:

“We loved it. You kept my 3 year old transfixed on her first trip to the theatre!”

"Just been to see Stuff and Nonsense at the Berry Theatre. A wonderful production which was enjoyed by the adults as much as the children!!" 

"We saw Puppet Panto at The Berry Theatre and would honestly say that this was one of the finest children’s productions we’ve seen. All three of my kids loved it. They are 2, 5 and 8. Perfect all round family entertainment."
