Taproot Theatre Play: The Shoemaker’s Christmas
Sunday, Dec. 22, 2019 at 9:15 am
Join us in Fellowship Hall for this Christmas production. Kids are welcome. And it’s free! Once upon a time, there was a gifted shoemaker and his wife. Hard times hit their village and the generous shoemaker gave away his last pair of shoes to someone in need. Left with just a few scraps of leather, the couple goes to bed uncertain of their future. Overnight, as if by magic, their luck turns when a mysterious pair of shoes appears on their counter. But if the shoemaker didn’t make the shoes, who did? Adapted from Grimm’s fairy tales, Shoemaker’s Christmas is a humbly comedic reminder that spreading kindness and generosity is worth more than gold.
