About the show
A title known the world over, Elf Jr. is a heart-warming musical about family, friendship, identity, believing in the power of giving, kindness, and finding your place in the world where you belong. 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.
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 their “inner elf” with plenty of large ensemble numbers featuring elves and (New Yorkers) of every type.
Elf Jr. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). www.MTIShows.com
