The Kempenfelt Community Players announces their 2020/2021 season.
The Young Company Production presents Elf in November at the Georgian Theatre.
Based on the beloved holiday film, Elf The Musical Jr. is a hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy that
follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity. 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. This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make every young
performer embrace his or her “inner elf” with plenty of large ensemble numbers featuring elves and

instant classic. Audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.

served with sides of Google background checks, fake emergency phone calls, a slew of bad boy and
uptown girl exes, and some seriously saucy chemistry. Can this mismatched pair turn what could be a
dating disaster into something special before the check arrives, or end up at another table for
