WTC announces auditions for its holiday show ‘Elf The Musical’

| September 23, 2021 12:00 AM

The Whitefish Theatre Co. is holding auditions for a winter production of “Elf The Musical” on Sept. 27 and 28 at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish. Auditions will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for young actors 12 to 18 years old only. Auditions for adults begin at 7:30 p.m. Arrive early to fill out an audition application and a waiver form. Enter at the north side of the building. Due to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases, masks are highly recommended when you enter the building, although you will be able to remove them during your audition. No preparation is required for the audition. Do not attend if you are feeling sick.

Based on the beloved film, “Elf The Musical” is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. When he discovers that he is not really an elf — his enormous size and poor toy-making skills should have tipped him off — he sets off for New York City to find his true identity, win over his new family and help New York remember the magic of Christmas.

This modern holiday classic is sure to have everyone embracing

their inner elf.

Kim Krueger is the director and Karla West is the music director of this production. “The large cast will include a diverse array of actors ages 12 and up only. The show needs singers and dancers and older teens who may be in the adult cast or considered for special dance parts.

Selected music rehearsals will begin the week of Oct. 4. Rehearsals will be held Monday through Friday from 6 to 7 p.m. and from 9 to 10 p.m. There are nine performances over two weekends Dec. 1 to 5 and Dec. 9 to 12.
