Elf the Musical, Jr.

music by Matthew Sklar
lyrics by Chad Beguelin
book by Thomas Meehan & Bob Martin

Love lets your spirits depart!

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. We meet Buddy, the orphan-turned-elf, as he journeys from the North Pole, where he has been raised among Santa’s elves, to New York City in order to discover his past, embrace a new world, and bring Christmas cheer by singing loud for all to hear! Along the way, Buddy & friends deliver toe-tapping songs, quippy jokes, and rousing dance numbers. Elf the Musical, Jr. will feature a cast entirely of children & teens and will be the Wheaton Drama holiday special—running one weekend only. This show is going to be the perfect holiday treat for every family!

Elf The Musical JR. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com
