Christmas is coming early for the Lowestoft Players with our announcement that we will be performing Elf the Musical in September/October at our Theatre, the Players Theatre.
Chair of the Lowestoft Players and Director of the production Nick Garrod said “Elf is going to be an amazing pre-festive treat for all the family. We can’t wait to welcome audiences to our Theatre to see it.”
However, before the production is staged the cast must be found, in particular we are searching for one of the main characters – Michael. Michael is the brother of Elf. Two young versatile male actors/singers are required to perform this role, they will be on stage for alternate performances.
The actors must have a playing age of 12 years and have an unbroken voice at the time of the production.
As well as being on stage acting and singing with other cast members, Michael will have a lovely duet with his mother Emily, “I Believe in You”.
The young performers playing Michael will also briefly appear on stage to play a second character visiting Santa at Macy’s, as a spoiled brat!
Auditions for Michael will be held at the Players Theatre, Lowestoft on Friday 12 May, with registration at 6.00pm.
Rehearsals will take place during July to September, mainly early evening. Closer to the show they will also be held on Sunday afternoons.
To register interest for this exciting and fun role, and to book an audition slot please email email@example.com - obviously with parental permission!
With plenty of catchy tunes, ELF tells 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. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

“It’s never too early to think about Christmas” added Nick Garrod “And this is going to be a wonderful, if not cheesy seasonal production!”
