The Elves and the Shoemaker - Scene 3


(When the stage is lit, light falls on a pair of shining smart brown shoes kept on the table. The shoemaker and his wife enter. He sees the shoes and exclaims.)
Shoemaker: Wow! It's a miracle. The leather has been made into a pair of beautiful shoes!
Shoemaker's wife: (surprised) I can't believe this! Who made this?
(Customer 1 enters.)
Customer 1: I would like to have a pair of dark brown shoes. Do you have such a pair?
Shoemaker: Of course sir, we've one right there.
Customer 1: What size are those shoes?
Shoemaker: They’re size ten, sir!
(He hands the shoes over to the customer. The customer tries them on.)
Customer 1: They’re perfect. What’s the price?
Shoemaker: Ten pounds.
Customer 1: Only ten pounds? But, they are so well made. I’ll give you fifteen.
Shoemaker: Oh sir, that’s very kind of you.
(Customer exits with the shoes.)
Shoemaker's wife: Fifteen pounds! We can buy leather for six pairs of shoes.
(The narrator enters.)
Narrator: The customer recommended the shoemaker to all his friends. The shoemaker bought more leather. And while they slept that night, the elves came.
(In the dim blue light enter two elves. They climb on the table and start working. They sing as they work.)
This is how we make a shoe
Snip! Snip! Snip! Snip! Sew!
Pull the thread right in and through
Snip! Snip! Snip! Snip! Sew!
With a tip tap here! And a tip tap there!
Here a tap! There a tap!
Everywhere a tap! tap!
This is how we make a shoe
Snip! Snip! Snip! Snip! Sew!
