The Elves and The Shoemaker

12 January 2019 - 27 January 2019

Washington Theatre Group Present their annual pantomime: The Elves and The Shoemaker
Leo is a very naughty Elf prince, he’s been using magic for fun and frolics and has been sent to the land of men to learn to be kind. When he gets there it’s the age old story; a pushy prince (and his long suffering valet and Nanny) bullying a poor shoemaker and kind and beautiful daughter Kate.  While Leo tries to rescue Kate, his elfish friends magic up some fabulous shoes. Come along for the ride; there’s a cake to be decorated (no soggy bottoms here!), a daring rescue (well, an inept competition entry) and happy (if slightly damp) ending.
