Village offers kids’ holiday play

The Village Theatre Pied Piper program’s first of two holiday plays for children is at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Everett Performing Arts Center,

“The Elves and the Shoemaker” is the well-known fairy tale about the good-hearted but poor shoemaker who has only enough leather left to make one pair of shoes.

He cuts them out at night and, to his amazement, there’s a perfect pair of shoes finished on his bench in the morning.

He sells them for a good price and buys more leather and the magic goes on.

The play is recommended for kids from kindergarten through fifth grade.

A holiday party will be held after the performance.

Tickets are $15 and available at

The Everett Performing Arts Center is at 2710 Wetmore. Call 425-257-8600 for more information.
