The Jonesborough Repertory Theatre invites you to see the delightful family holiday classic, Elf Jr., between December 8th and 18th at the theatre located at 125½ West Main Street in Jonesborough.
Elf Jr. follows the story of Buddy the Elf (Andrew Duncan), who is human but raised as an elf by Santa Claus (Cameron Felton) and his elves at the North Pole. When Buddy realizes he isn’t quite like the other elves, he decides to track down his birth family, which takes him to the hustle and bustle of New York City. There, he meets nice people like Jovie (Madelyn Goward) and not-so-nice people like his very own father, Walter Hobbs (Alex Vanburen). Laugh and cry along with Buddy as he tries to win over not only his father, but a whole city of people who need more Christmas spirit.
Elf Jr—a musical by Thomas Meehan, Bob Martin, Matthew Skylar and Chad Beguelin—is based on the New Line Cinema film by David Berenbaum. The show has a cast of 36 very talented elementary through high school children and is directed by Lucas Schmidt and Katelyn Yarbrough.
Others included in the cast are Trinity Dixon (Emily Hobbs), Holden Reid (Michael Hobbs), and Elliott Childress (Mr. Greenway) and many more.
Shows will run on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 5:00 p.m.; and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $16 general admission, $14 for students and seniors.
