“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” Young Stars Theatre is back with their favorite holiday tradition, Elf Jr.! A whimsical musical that’s fun for the whole family, Elf Jr. opens December 1st at the Fremont Centre Theatre.
Based on the movie starring Will Ferrell, this show is sure to inspire feelings of holiday magic! There are two casts of talented kids playing many of the characters we all know and love. Every actor portrays the characters in their own unique ways, keeping the show fresh for those who come back year after year.
Elf Jr. follows the plight of Buddy, a young orphan, who 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.
A ticket to see Elf Jr. is the perfect holiday outing or gift for you and your loved ones! Be transported to the North Pole and New York City amidst catchy songs, fun dancing, and a heart-warming story.
Elf Jr. opens December 1st and runs for three weekends only. For upcoming audition info, showtimes and ticketing, and more info about YST, visit www.YoungStarsTheatre.org.
