Holy tap-dancing elves!

 

In 2015 we made a bunch of custom elf boots plus some elf SPATS for Ohio production and costume designer Inda Blatch-Geib. She designed the new production, Kris Kringle the Musical, which premiered Friday, December 4th 2015 in Olmsted Falls.

 

 

Thank you Inda for giving McGrews a nice shout out in The Akron Beacon Journal http://www.ohio.com/entertainment/kerry-clawson/kris-kringle-is-a-rich-magical-world-of-color-texture-for-akron-costume-designer-1.643784
