For our holiday production of Elf the Musical Jr, we’ve decided to cast an adult actor as Santa Claus!
The story of Elf , based on the film starring Will Ferrell, follows Buddy, a human who grew up thinking he was an elf, on his adventure from the North Pole to New York City to find his family and help them remember the true meaning of Christmas! (The “junior” version of the musical is slightly adapted for young actors and audience.)
The role of Santa is in two scenes only, but one scene includes a song. Rehearsals will be on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6-8 pm at Holmes Elementary School at 2150 Stanley Street in New Britain (off Hartford Road (Route 71) near West Farms Mall)). For the first several weeks, rehearsal time for Santa will likely be limited. The production will be performed at the same location on December 9, 10 and 11.
To schedule an audition or ask further questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Resumes and headshots may be attached if available.Non-union actors only can be considered, and the role is non-paying. Auditions will be scheduled by appointment. Actors auditioning should prepare an upbeat musical theater song and bring sheet music for the musical director.
Children and teens ages 6 through 18 will play all other roles, and audition details are posted here.
