Elf, The Musical - A Family Holiday Event!

Book by Matthew Sklar & Chad Beguelin, 
Music & Lyrics by Thomas Meehan & Bob Martin

Directed by Mychelle Hopkins

Elf The Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to find his birth father, discover his true identity and share the spirit of Christmas with everyone.

Elf has numerous roles available for a variety of ages. To be clear Elf, the Musical is primarily an adult show with a few roles for youth we encourage anyone to audition. If you arenb't familiar with the story, you should check out the film. It is now a Christmastime standard, and has quickly become a classic.

The Musical has engaging music that you can listen to through Spotify, Amazon Unlimited and can also be found on YouTube.

Please prepare a 16 bar segment of a song that shows your vocal ability to its best advantage.
