Join MTA’s Rising Stars in our Fall Semester production of “ELF THE MUSICAL JR.” This Broadway-style show will be performed in a state-of-the-art 200-seat theater with full sets and costumes.
A title known the world over, this family-friendly stage musical is appropriate for all audiences and is a hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy that follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to discover his true identity. This magical holiday classic is sure to make every young performer embrace his or her “Inner Elf,” as it features plenty of large ensemble numbers and memorable musical moments that will help all of us to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
REHEARSALS will occur every Wednesday from 4:00 to 6:30 pm for FULL CAST and every Monday from 4:00 to 6:30 pm for smaller scenes and groups as needed. You must be available to be scheduled both days of rehearsal if needed. A more detailed Final Rehearsal Schedule will be provided after the show is cast, and it will reflect any regular rehearsal days that will be taken off in observance of Fall Holidays.
Auditions occur Monday AND Wednesday, September 11th and 13th from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. [Please note: Full attendance at both auditions increases – but does not guarantee – your chance of landing the role you want. Please bring a Snack and/or a Light Dinner to the auditions.]
Regular Rehearsals begin on Monday, September 18th, 2023.
