Beverley residents will embrace their inner ‘elf’ when Starbrite Studios School of Performing Arts students present their production of Elf Jr. The Musical.
The show features 60 Starbrite students, aged between 3 and 16 years, and premieres on Sunday 3 December 2017 at The Parkway Cinema.
Emma Bailey-Hague, Creative Director and Principal of Starbrite Studios said;
“Elf Jr. The Musical is an uplifting musical about one boy’s quest to find his true identity. The story encourages each of us to approach each day with goodwill, wonder and cheer.”
“From the first rehearsal, the students have worked together as a team to create this wonderful experience for our community to enjoy. We think they deserve a standing ovation for all their work.”
The musical tells the story of a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is given the name Buddy and raised by elves in the North Pole.
Buddy lives happily 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 his stepbrother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of the holidays.
Elf Jr. The Musical is based on the 2003 New Line Cinema hit ‘Elf’ starring Will Ferrell, and features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer) and Chad Beguelin (Disney’s Aladdin On Broadway, The Wedding Singer), a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone).
Starbrite Studios will present two showings of Elf Jr. The Musical on Sunday 3rd December 2017 at 2:30pm and 5:00pm at the Parkway Cinema.
There is already much excitement around it, so people are being encouraged to book their tickets early to avoid disappointment.
