“Fabulous Shoes” are back in style at East Bay Children’s Theatre

East Bay Children’s Theatre, the San Francisco Bay Areas oldest Continuously Operating Theatre Company, presents first-ever revival for exciting 83rd season:

“The Shoemaker and The Elves” Musical


A side-splitting one-hour Musical Comedy for the Entire Family, THERE’S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOE BUSINESS puts a new twist on the classic Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale, “The Shoemaker and The Elves”.

When a poor Cobbler is tricked by the wicked Leather Monger, he finds himself in danger of losing his home, his livelihood, and even his beloved cat Purrnella. What to do?! Send in the Elves! Will the pointy-eared misfits save the day? Will the Leather Monger get what’s coming to him? Will there be a happy ending? Does a Stiletto have a Heel?

The Cast includes talent brought together from across the Bay Area: Ken Woolfe (Shoemaker), Marian Simpson (Mrs. Shoemaker), Jeff Morrill (The Leather Monger), Elly Rokeach (Purrnella), Hilary Ann Stevens (Gertie), Rebecca Ariel Fox (Trudy), Alexis Jensen (Prudence), Eve Tieck (Pat), Emily Kessel (The Little Girl), Harriet Hanauer (Little Girl’s Mother), Barbara Ann Cecchetti (The Customer), Ben Tucker (The Landlord), Grace Poon (The Fisherwoman) and Barbara Sloane (The Street Sweeper.)

Featuring a tuneful score and hilarious script first commissioned from award-winning writer-composer Ron Lytle in 2005, East Bay Children's Theatre's 10th Anniversary Production of THERE'S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOE BUSINESS promises to be the must-see family event of the season!
