ELF – THE MUSICAL

Book by Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin
Music by Matthew Sklar
Lyrics by Chad Beguelin
Based upon the New Line Cinema film written by David Berenbaum

Directed by Domonic Barnes
Choreographed by Olivia Cruz

Elf the Musical, based on the 2003 New Line Cinema hit starring Will Ferrell, is the charming tale of Buddy, a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. Buddy is elf-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, he embarks on a journey to New York City with dreams to find his birth father and discover his true identity. What’s an adopted elf to do when he realizes his father is on Santa’s ‘naughty’ list and his half-brother doesn’t believe that there is a Santa Claus? It’s up to Buddy to save Christmas! Find your inner ELF as the writers of Annie and The Wedding Singer bring us the unforgettable gift of a Broadway musical for the holiday season! After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

BUDDY: Born a human but raised at the North Pole as a Christmas Elf, Buddy is eager to find his place in the world. He is a child at heart and that child-like curiosity makes him both endearing and gets him into trouble. 25 to 35. Vocal range: Ab2 – C5.

JOVIE: Buddy’s girlfriend. She works at Macy’s and has a bit of a cynical outlook on life and love because of the men she’s dated. She is caught off guard by Buddy’s genuinely big heart. 25 to 30. Vocal range: G3 – D5.

WALTER: Buddy’s workaholic father. He is a Children’s book writer, but lacks any of the childlike spirit that Buddy has. He is selfish, tense, and generally angry with life. 55 to 65. Vocal range: A2 – G4.

EMILY: Walter’s wife. Though she is sweet and willing to take him in, she thinks Buddy is crazy at first. Wishes her husband would spend more time with the family. 40 to 50. Vocal range: F3 – Eb5.

MICHAEL: Buddy’s step-brother who is excited to have a new friend and brother. Unlike his mother, he doesn’t take much convincing to have Christmas spirit, but like his mother, he wishes his father would spend more time with the family. 12 to 16. Vocal range: F3 – G5.

DEB: Walter’s secretary. Takes an instant liking to Buddy simply for the novelty of it. Though she aims to please and is a bit of a suck-up, she feels under appreciated. 25 to 55. Vocal range: D4 – Eb5.

MANAGER: A heavy-set manager at Macy’s. He is a good, friendly guy just trying to do his job and get by. 35 to 40. Vocal range: B2 – F#4.

GREENWAY: Walter’s boss. He is what Walter will become if he continues down the path he is on. A tyrannical, workaholic who cares nothing about the people around him or who work for him. 55 to 65.

SANTA: Just another workingman. Loves his job and Christmas, but also likes to kick-back and watch the game when a rare opportunity arises. A natural storyteller. 65 to 80. Vocal range: A2 – E4.

CHADWICK: One of Walter’s right-hand men. He is desperate to keep his job, and perhaps the dumber of the two. 40 to 50.

MATTHEWS: One of Walter’s right-hand men. He is desperate to keep his job and is the schemer of the two. 35 to 40.
