By CBBC TV Writer and children’s author, Ian Billings.
With only three days left before Christmas, Mr. Klopp, the penniless shoemaker, has only enough leather left to make one pair of shoes. He sets the leather aside to be completed the next morning. That night two cheeky elves, Bip and Bop, appear thinking they’ve arrived at Santa’s grotto. They make the leather into a splendid pair of shoes.
The next morning, Mr. Klopp awakens to discover the shoes. He sells the shoes at huge profit, gives away most of the money and uses the remainder to buy twice as much leather which he plans to make into two pairs of shoes. That night, Bip and Bop, return and once more find the leather and begin to create.
The third night Mr. Klopp stays awake to see what’s happening to the material but when Bip and Bop return, they are scared off by Mr. Klopp, who fears he will be poor again. However, everything changes when a magical man in a red and white coat arrives to reveal it was he to whom Mr. Klopp was selling the shoes.
With some Christmas Magic, Santa saves the workshop and treats his hard-working elves to some new cloths and he rewards the boys and girls for their help, with an exciting early Christmas present.
This show features original songs by Richard Lamming, energetic choreography, audience participation and gifts for all of the Children.
