Elves are coming to work in Chesterville! Selover Public Library in Chesterville invites the public to their free holiday celebration on Saturday, December 5, at 7:00 P.M. at the Chester Township Town Hall.

The library is sponsoring a free performance, The Elves and the Shoemaker, by ArtReach, a division of the Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati. After the show, Santa Claus will visit with the children.

The play is appropriate for children of all ages! When a kindly shoemaker gives his only remaining pair of shoes to a cold and hungry beggar woman, he finds his good deed rewarded in unexpected ways. The shoemaker is shocked by the appearance of magic elves who turn his simple shoe shop into a great success, thrilling customers with their special creations. Soon the Queen hears of this unique shoe shop, but can the Shoemaker impress her without the elves? Based on the tale by the Brothers Grimm, this beloved, warm-hearted story reminds us that where we find goodness, generosity and hope, anything is possible.

Following the performance, Santa will listen to children’s wish lists and pose for photos, so attendees should bring their cameras.

The Chester Township Town Hall is located on State Route 314 across from the Chesterville post office.
