Daviess County High School’s TaDA class presents Elf Jr. Monday and Tuesday December 3 and 4 at 7 p.m in the DCHS auditorium.
Based on the beloved holiday film, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity.
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 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.
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.
The DCHS production is under the direction of Karen Feldhaus and Candy Miller and features a cast of over 40 students.
Elf Jr. promises to be a delight for all ages. Tickets can be purchased at the door and are priced at $10 for adults and $5 for students in grades K-12.
In addition to evening performances on Dec. 3 and 4, a school day matinee on Tuesday. Dec. 4 is offered to local elementary and middle school classes.
