The Magic Elves

A Bristol Old Vic production
Music by Kid Carpet
Written by Mike Akers
Directed by Miranda Cromwell

After the success of last year's Antarctica, the Bristol Old Vic Studio is once again transformed into a magical winter playground.

Life's a party for the Magic Elves. They love playing, dancing and being very, very silly.

But when they move into a rundown old shoe shop they get a shock. Not everyone is as happy as they are! The shoemaker has forgotten how to laugh and it's been years since he threw shapes on the dance floor.

Can the Magic Elves put a smile on his face and a spring in his step in time for the Christmas Disco?

Come along and find out - be sure to bring your dancing shoes!

Based on The Elves and the Shoemaker by the Brothers Grimm

Prepare for some serious sparkle in this magical production."
