La Crosse Community Theatre will hold auditions for the holiday musical, Elf The Musical, on October 7 and 8, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. at Weber Center for the Performing Arts, 428 Front Street South, La Crosse, WI.

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag and is transported to the North Pole. Raised as an elf, Buddy doesn’t realize he is actually human until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities force him to face the truth. Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his father. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his new sibling doesn’t believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Elf The Musical will be directed by guest artist, Stephanie Harter Campbell. Stephanie is thrilled to be back at Weber Center for the Performing Arts for Elf The Musical. Previous directing credits include Mamma Mia! and The Music Man (LCT), as well as Hansel and Gretel (Viterbo). Having performed in 45 states and 7 countries on 4 national tours and at numerous professional regional theatres, Stephanie has settled down here in La Crosse and is thoroughly enjoying directing and teaching in the Music and Theatre departments at Viterbo University.

Auditions are open for age 8 and up. There are roles available for men, women, and children. A complete breakdown of roles available can be found online at www.lacrossecommunitytheatre.org/volunteer/audition. Auditionees should prepare 30 seconds of singing with accompaniment (pianist, CD player, and 1/8 in. input-headphone-cable will be provided) and be dressed to move for a dance audition. First-time auditionees are welcome-no experience necessary.

Performances are Thursdays through Sundays, December 6-22, 2019 with an additional performance Wednesday, December 18, 2019. The cast list will be announced during the morning show of WXOW on Friday, October 11, 2019, as well as on LCT’s website and social media pages.
