Embrace Your Inner Elf this Holiday Season! Audition for ELF THE MUSICAL at SVCAC!
The Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center is holding open auditions for ELF THE MUSICAL. Initial auditions are by electronic submission only with in person invited callbacks on Monday, September 19, 2022. Performances for ELF THE MUSICAL run November 19 - December 23, 2022. Based on the cherished 2003 New Line Cinema hit, ELF THE MUSICAL features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer) and Chad Beguelin (Disney's Aladdin on Broadway), with a book by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone). 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.
