Those auditioning should bring a short (1 minute or less) Broadway style song with accompaniment on tape, CD, or iPod that showcases your vocal ability. (No background vocals, please! We want to hear what YOU can do!) You will also be taught a dance. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes and plan to arrive promptly to fill out forms, including parental consent forms. Bring a current photo.

Based on the beloved holiday film starring Will Ferrell, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity. As a young orphan, he mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised unaware he’s 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. He’s 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 his or her “inner elf” with plenty of large ensemble numbers featuring elves and (New Yorkers) of every type.
