Cast Announced For ELF THE MUSICAL, JR. At Stages Theatre

Everyone's favorite Elf is coming to Stages Theatre Company, in the holiday classic Elf the Musical, Jr.! Join us this winter as we follow Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity and win over his new family. Based on the beloved film from New Line Cinema, this hilarious musical is filled with memorable songs, lots of laughs and holiday cheer for the whole family to enjoy.

Elf the Musical, Jr. is approximately 75 minutes with an intermission and is recommended for all ages. Tickets are on sale now!

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and gets transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With permission from Santa, he embarks on a journey to New York City to find his true identity.

Directed by Sandy Boren-Barrett and Michael Matthew Ferrell, Elf the Musical, Jr. takes us through a journey that captures the true meaning of the holiday season. "At the heart of this beautiful and funny musical is the importance of family; and the friends that have become a family TO YOU!
