Christian Youth Theater North Idaho will bring Elf Jr. to the S.A. Kroc Community Theater, 1765 W. Golf Course Rd., Coeur d’Alene, ID on Nov 18-27,2016.
A title known the world over, Elf the Musical Jr., is a holiday musical that can easily become an annual tradition. Based on the cherished New Line Cinema hit movie, Elf Jr.features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Skjlar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin.
Sixty five local school children ages 8-18 are currently in the last weeks of rehearsal preparing to kick off the Christmas season with this family-friendly, heart-warming, and funny story. Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of presents and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually human, until his large 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. This modern-day Christmas classic is sure to help theater-goers of all ages find their inner Elf just in time for the holidays.
