The 2019 TCS Youth Theatre Workshop presents Elf The Musical, JR. All the cast members are kids ages 8 to 14. They will not only sing, dance, and act, they will also design and build the set, make the costumes, and do everything else you need to put on a show.
Come see the results of their work. They will present Elf The Musical, JR., a junior version of musical based on the beloved holiday film. This hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity.
ABOUT THE SHOW
A title known the world over, Elf The Musical JR. is based on the cherished New Line Cinema hit. Elf JR. features songs by Tony Award-nominees, Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin.
Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make every young performer embrace his or her “inner elf” with plenty of large ensemble numbers featuring elves and (New Yorkers) of every type.
Elf The Musical, JR. is presented through special arrangement with Musical Theatre International. All authorized performance materials are supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly controlled.
