3rd-8th Grade Musical

Welcome to Roots’ School of Theatre children’s theatre for young performers in grades 3rd – 8th. Our musical theatre productions are very special as we only accept 20 or fewer actors per production (depending on the show) to ensure quality of instruction and experience for each young actor.  All young performers are guaranteed a speaking role in the production as well as singing and dancing throughout the entire show.

Elf Jr.

August – December 2022

By: Thomas Meehan, Bob Martin, Mathew Sklar, and Chad Beguelin

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. 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.
