'Tis the season to be fascinated by things that go bump in the night, and Germantown Community Theatre will not let you down. On Oct. 25, 2013, at 6:00pm, a Fairy Tail Trail and the production, "The Shoemaker and the Elves," will be performed by kids at Camryn Brown Park.
A synopsis of this short play is, Poor Lockhart Cobblestone is a kind shoemaker with a gentle heart yet little money. Despite his problems, the generous man helps an old beggar woman by giving her his last pair of shoes. Now Lockhart has only enough leather to make just a single pair. The penniless man sets the material out to work on the next morning.
Upon his exit, out spring five eccentric and endearing elves. Mortz, Schwartz, Hazel, Gracie and Studebaker create the most incredible and magical shoes the town of Clankbottom has ever seen. This charming version is filled with silly roles, such as ballerina Loretta Le Pointe and Olympiad Zoom Corrigan, who both need specialized footwear. A number of delightful tunes include "We Love To Dance," "Smack, Smack, Smack," and the toe-tapping "Shoes."
In addition to this performance, there will be a "Trail of Terror," and concessions, free carnival rides and moon bouncing. This entire event is appropriate for the whole family.
The event runs from 6:00pm-8:15pm, and there is a $4.00 admission for each person. Tour groups will leave every 15 minutes, and the organizers say "The Shoemaker and the Elves" is, "An exciting fairy tale performed for kids, by kids with dialogue, music and dance on a trail through the forest in Camryn Brown Park." In case of rain, this event will be on Oct. 26, 2013.
The address of the this event is Camryn Brown Park at 8750 Farmington Boulevard, Germantown, Tenn.. For more information visit www.gctcomeplay.org or call 901-937-3024.
