Elf The Musical JR. is based on the 2003 New Line Cinema hit and features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer) and Chad Beguelin (Disney’s Aladdin On Broadway, The Wedding Singer), a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone).
The musical tells the story of a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is given the name Buddy and raised by elves in the North Pole. Buddy lives happily 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 his stepbrother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of the holidays.

Elizabeth Jolly, Director here! Santa (I know him) wrote me several months ago asking for extra help spreading holiday spirit this year. Naturally, I a) always do what Santa asks b) immediately thought of Abrams Spotlight Productions. Obviously, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear, so ASPI and I decided to present Elf: The Musical Jr. We’re looking for kids ages 8-17 to help us help Santa. No previous experience in performing is required. Auditions will consist of sight-singing a song from the show, a cold reading (not rehearsed) from the script, and a short choreographed dance. All materials will be provided. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes in which you can move.
Rehearsals will most likely be held Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays starting Oct 1 – Dec 6 (opening night). Not all cast will be called for every rehearsal. With advance notice, we can work around schedule conflicts but every cast & crew member must be available every day the week of Sun, Dec 1 – Thursday, Dec 5, and all show dates.
Want to help out but feeling a little shy? We also need lots of extremely important behind-the-scenes elves!
