GIVEAWAY: Win passes to Tears of Joy Theatre’s Shoemaker and the Elves

720x379 Shoemaker

Come see one of the country’s premiere puppet theatres! Featuring cultural tales from around the world (and some from our own back yard) and larger than life puppets, Tears of Joy Theatre has been entertaining audiences for over 40 years.

Tears of Joy Theatre continues its 2013-2014 Family Series with The Shoemaker and the Elves, December 13-22, 2013, at the Markham Elementary Theatre, 10531 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland.

The holidays are approaching, but business is not so good at Footmeyer’s Shoes. Mel and Tootsie have kept their store open for 42 years, and this year may be the last. What’s a shoemaker to do? Enter Frankie and Gino, two bumbling, lovable elves who have nothing but time on their hands and a burning desire to build, build, build! Come join the fun as Santa’s shoe artists help the Footmeyers spread good cheer all around 1940s New York City. Expect exciting celebrity appearances and swinging big band music to keep the holiday spirit hopping.

    We have never been to Tears of Joy Theatre, but my daughter is a huge fan of theatre in general. She also loves anything Christmas-themed! We would love so much to see this show.
