Fes­tive fairy-tale fun for the fam­ily

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODDRINKING - JBJ REPORTER

THE MAG­I­CAL Christ­mas fairy tale The Elves and the Shoe­maker is be­ing staged at the Hill­song Church in Cen­tury City.

This merry mini-mu­si­cal, put on by the Lil­liput Chil­dren’s The­atre Com­pany, tells the story of a Ger­man shoe­maker and his wife. They are very poor and are wor­ried they will not be able to sell enough shoes. But that changes when two elves pay them a visit and make it the best Christ­mas they have ever had.

Jin­gle Bells, Deck the Halls and Bright Christ­mas are just some of the songs chil­dren can sing along to in this fes­tive show.

It is di­rected by El­ton John Duffy, who has been work­ing in chil­dren’s the­atre since 1993.

The pro­duc­tion stars Liande Va­len­tyn as Cut­patch, Nikki Louw as Lady La­dida, Duffy as Amadeus, Desle Mc­conney as Snip­stitch and Car­men Maar­man as Brigitte. The show is 40 min­utes long and is suit­able for the whole fam­ily.

It will run from Mon­day to Satur­day at 10.30am.

Af­ter each show, the au­di­ence can meet Fa­ther Christ­mas, who will be hand­ing out sweets to the chil­dren.

Par­ents are en­cour­aged to bring a present or a toy for an un­der­priv­i­leged child to put un­der the Christ­mas tree. These presents will be dis­trib­uted to chil­dren’s homes and hos­pi­tals in Cape Town.

Tick­ets are R40 at Com­puticket. For block book­ings or queries, call Duffy at 083 364 8284 or 021 558- 2650. For more in­for­ma­tion on the Lil­liput Chil­dren’s The­atre Com­pany, visit www.lil­liput­play­ers.co.za
