Children’s Theatre of Charleston presents ‘Elf Jr.: The Musical!’
CHARLESTON — The Children’s Theatre of Charleston continues over eight decades of successful productions with practically the most merriest musical with “Elf Jr.: The Musical!”
The musical is scheduled to take place at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center Little Theater. Debbie Haught directs more than 60 local actors in this production, with Jeff Haught as musical director. Performances are Friday, Dec. 7, and Saturday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 8 and Sunday, Dec. 9 at 2 p.m. The performance is only scheduled for one weekend only.
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 reality that his father is on the naughty list and that 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.
