Auditions for Elf the Musical will be held on August 31st and September 1st at 7:30pm at the Legion Theatre. Elf the Musical will run December 4-19 and will be directed by Stacey Bern and Bill Brown.
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 realities that his father is on the naughty list and 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.
Auditions will consist of two parts: cold reading from the script and musical selections. Auditioners will need to prepare a verse and chorus of a song in a similar style to the show. Please bring your accompaniment track on a CD or on a device that accepts a standard AUX cord (e.g. smartphone). No a capella.
