Elf, Jr

Performed by CenterStage's Tapestry Theatre!

Elf: The Musical, Jr.
December 2017
Louisville Arts Center, Louisville, CO


Director: Elizabeth Goodrich and Lynne Niston
Music: Matthew Sklar
Lyrics: Chad Beguelin
Book: 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.
