From a North Creek Theatre Company news release.
Come enjoy one of the six performances of “Elf The Musical” at North Creek High School beginning Friday, December 6, 2019, and ending on Saturday, December 14th.
North Creek High School is proud to be one of the first schools in the greater Seattle area to acquire the rights to the outstanding holiday musical.
A cast and crew of over 60 students, along with help from parents and boosters, have been working on this entertaining holiday delight with costume changes galore since September.
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.
“Elf The Musical” is directed by Tim Hagerman and Karen Mitchell.
North Creek Theatre Co. is thrilled to be working with local musical professionals Shileah Corey as Musical Director and Coulson Bingham as Choreographer, both from Ballyhoo Theatre.
