It’s that time of year, isn’t it?
As well as their ‘Snow White’ extravaganza, The Customs House are also staging ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’, which should delight the younger bairns.
This year’s show marks the 10thanniversary of Wayne Miller playing Elfluent, in various Santa’s Naughty Elf productions and, as is his wont, he’ll be giving it plenty of welly in this year’s production of ‘The Naughty Elves and the Shoemaker’. The show will feature original storytelling music by north-east singer/songwriter Jen Stevens, who serves as musical director as well as the narrator Mrs Shoemaker. Miller: “A decade of Santa’s Naughty Elf has come and gone and it’s been a real honour and pleasure to create and play this character. This year is a new adventure but an old story. We decided to put Elfluent in a well-known story with the chance of a new calamity. We have lots of festive fun on offer that will hopefully please the fans who come every year and attract first-timers.”The Elves and the Shoemaker, Saturday 30 November-Tuesday 24 December, The Customs House, South Shields, times vary, from £10. customshouse.co.uk
