Clarksville, TN – Local youth will have the opportunity to work alongside professional actors when the Roxy Regional Theatre holds children’s auditions for elves in Harry Connick, Jr.’s “The Happy Elf” on Saturday, October 22nd, at 1:00pm.
Children ages 10 and up should come prepared with “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” and be dressed to move in comfortable clothing and shoes, as the audition will also include a dance portion. All auditionees will sing through “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” with the recorded track prior to individual auditions.
Written by Grammy Award-winning composer and lyricist Harry Connick, Jr., “The Happy Elf” tells the story of Eubie the Elf, who is on a musical mission to bring Christmas cheer to Bluesville, a town on Santa’s naughty list.
Performances run November 24th through December 17th at the Roxy Regional Theatre. Although the production will play weekday matinees for school groups, those children who are cast will only need to be present for the evening performances. Children’s rehearsals will begin on Tuesday, November 1st, from 5:00pm to 6:30pm.
A tentative rehearsal and performance schedule, along with lyrics to “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” can be found online at www.roxyregionaltheatre.org/auditions/happyelf.pdf
The Roxy Regional Theatre is located at 100 Franklin Street in Clarksville, TN.
