A family production that is a magical mix of theatre, songs, clowning, puppetry, music and animation is coming to Upper Broughton Village Hall on Sunday.

The Elves and The Carpenter is a brand new show from Kate Bramley’s Badapple Theatre Company and follows the adventures of Mrs Claus, who finds mischievous missing elves hiding among the upcycling at Mrs Carpenter’s shop.

Their attempt to help complete her special Christmas order has not worked as they had hoped, and Mrs Claus must restore order and get them back to the North Pole.

Writer Kate Bramley said: “It’s always a special treat for us to put on our new Christmas stories out on the road.

“Over the last decade we’ve really worked hard to create performances that are just as appealing for grandparents as they’re for kids and we’re looking forward to this one.

“Those pesky elves will be causing all sorts of comic confusions!”

The Elves and The Carpenter stars Sarah Raine as Coco and frances Tither as Biscuit with original songs and music by Sony award-winning singer songwriter Jez Lowe, nominated for two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. It has been organised through Nottinghamshire Village Ventures Rural Touring Scheme.

The play starts at 2pm and tickets are priced at £10 for adults, £5 for children under 16 and £25 for a family of four. To purchase them call Tim Flood on (01664) 823165. Tickets will also be sold on the door.
