Auditions for Ardmore Little Theatre’s upcoming production of “Elf The Musical” will be Monday, October 18th, 2020 at 7:00pm at the Goddard Center.
“Elf the Musical” was cancelled last year due to Covid, and most of last year’s cast is returning this year. If you were cast in last year’s production of Elf and already confirmed to the director you’re returning, you do not have to come to auditions or re-audition for the show.
We are only auditioning for the following roles that we need to fill:
North Pole Elves
Several smaller speaking roles
Please enter by the stage door on the North side of the building. Due to the large size of the script, we will not be handing out reading copies before auditions.
For the singing part of auditions, everyone will sing “Jingle Bells”. A pianist will be provided and you will have a choice of 3 keys to sing it in. There be some basic movement choreography at auditions. If you are unable to come on Monday, please let us know. No experience is necessary to audition.
Lisa Riggle will be directing this musical for Ardmore Little Theatre. Lisa has been in several productions, including “Hello, Dolly”, “Mamma Mia”, “Annie” and “9 to 5 the Musical” to name just a few. Dr. David Hobbs will be the orchestra director for this show and Kelsey Armstrong will be the choreographer. Performances will be December 6 – 12, 2021 at the Goddard Center. All performances are at 7:00pm, except for the Sunday matinee at 2:30 pm.
SYNOPSIS: A young orphan, Buddy, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and ends up at the North Pole. Raised among elves he is unaware that he is actually a human until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities lead him to 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. Learning that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t believe in Santa, Buddy seeks to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
