If you're looking for glamour, go somewhere else. But if you're just looking for a fun, casual time, this venue is great.

We ate at the Mexican restaurant across the street before the show. It was good, although a little slow since it was packed. There is a bar and grill nearby and an Italian restaurant.

Good show for young children. The villian was especially good, as was Santa. They could use a synopsis in the program to help explain the moral of the story to those who are not familiar with it.

Overall a great play for the kids. The cast in general was good but you could tell that some of them are newer to performing than others. Still, well worth the trip.

Description

The Grove Theatre is proud to announce the opening of the “cutest” Christmas show you’ll ever see, The Elves and The Shoemaker. The shoemaker has a kind heart but little money in his pocket. Moved by the plight of an old beggar man, he gives him his last pair of shoes. The poor shoemaker has leather enough to make only one more pair of shoes and sets out to work on them on Christmas Eve morning. Then, the fun begins! Out pop five weird, endearing little elves who whip up the most fantastic and magical shoes the little town has ever seen. Here’s an upbeat, fast-paced retelling of an old favorite, based on a Grimm fairy tale, filled with delightfully wacky characters and clever dialogue. This upbeat, whimsical romp of a fantasy also holds a gentle message about the nature of kindness.
