Once upon a time, there were two shoemakers who were very old and very poor. So poor, they couldn't even afford to buy each other Christmas presents. With no wood for the fire and the only one piece of leather left to make the shoes, there was little festive cheer in the shoemakers' shop. But that night, just as the snow begins to drift down outside and the clock strikes midnight, two little Elves mysteriously appear on the workbench...

Live music, puppetry, physical storytelling and plenty of Elf magic come together to tell this classic tale.
