The shoemaker and his wife have nothing left to eat but two crusts of bread, and nothing to make shoes with but one piece of leather. Some kindly elves tiptoe in and work to make the holiday season magical. Join the Clubhouse at the Playhouse Gang each month as they dramatize a favorite story using their imaginations and the costume pieces and props they find in their Magic Trunk. A new story is presented each month, October through May, with a special presentation in June. Children learn the Clubhouse pledge and secret handshake, and listen for the word of the day.
