A title known the world over, Elf The Musical JR. is a must-produce holiday musical that can easily become an annual tradition for any theatre. Based on the cherished New Line Cinema hit, Elf JR. features songs by Tony Award-nominees, Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin.
Buddy, a young orphan, 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 step-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.
This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make every young performer embrace their “inner elf” with plenty of large ensemble numbers featuring elves and New Yorkers of every type.
Below we have the music and lyrics for all of our principal roles. To audition you must learn the song allocated to your character and send a video recording to us. There is also a scripted scene for you to perform as your chosen character. If you wish, you can audition for more than one role and please state if you would prefer a a smaller speaking part.
We also would like to highlight that children/young people of any gender can audition for any of the principal roles and the production is a fully inclusive show. We won’t be changing the gender of the role or the name of the character or the pronouns associated with the character, as this would be a violation of copyright.
For your video recording please use the backing track provided, not the vocal track. Please perform the musical numbers, using acting through song suitable for the character – don’t just sing the song, we need to see a performance.
