Laugh when two merry elves arrive at a small village in the Black Forest to discover a poor, gentle shoemaker who clearly needs their assistance. Their good deeds, kindness and resourcefulness save the shoemaker and his wife from a bleak and unhappy holiday. This hilarious CTC production has been delighting students throughout the U. S. for two decades!
Don’t take this the wrong way, because I’m not advocating that you encourage your child to skip school, NOR am I downplaying the value of education. That said, I believe that once in a while it is okay to let your child miss a day of school in the name of quality time. Kids can sometimes get lost in the holiday shuffle (between packages, Christmas cards, wrapping paper and baking) and taking a day with just you and your little one can mean more than a tree full of gifts for them.
Here is an idea: surprise your elementary school kiddo with a special day this Thursday that includes lunch with just the two of you and The Elves and the Shoemaker.
The California Theater Center is performing The Elves and the Shoemaker at the Crest Theater on Thursday, December 17th with showtimes at 10AM and 12PM. Tickets are $7-10 and the Crest is located at 1013 K Street.

We’ll see you there!
