Product Description

An enchanting Christmas Musical for young children to star in, learn from and enjoy. It is easy to stage for a class of 30 children ideally aged 6 to 9 (Upper Key Stage 1 / Lower Key Stage 2) and the story is based on a well-loved traditional tale, told through original lyrics and lively music to present a complete theatrical experience to a school.

Characters include poor shoemaker Stefan Sole, a band of mischievous elves & their lazy foreman Flipflop, town crier Toecap & his apprentices Mutter & Mumble, evil bailiff Slingback, Fairy Magigayle & Serena Stiletto who just can't resist buying shoes.
