AUDITIONS FOR ELF THE MUSICAL
The Un-Common Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for our Fall Production of Elf The Musical. 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 realities that his father is on the naughty list and 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.
This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf. After all, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!
Auditions for students in Grades 2 through 12 will be held on Saturday, September 11, 2021 beginning at 10:00 am BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. To make your appointment please fill out your audition form by clicking the button below. Please allow 2-3 days to receive your reply.
In our ongoing effort to reduce COVID-19 transmission and to keep everyone as safe as possible, all participants age 12 and over will be required to be fully vaccinated and show proof of such at the audition check-in table. No student, age 12 and over, will be permitted to audition without it. In addition, we will be requiring that everyone in the audition building (auditioners and those accompanying them) to wear a mask. Auditioners will be able to remove their masks when instructed (if comfortable) during the actual audition. At this time we anticipate masking during rehearsals, but will continually monitor guidance from the CDC and the state of Massachusetts and update our policies as needed.
