Elfis and the Sleigh Riders:
Musical Performance Camp,
Ages 6-9
Tuition: $125
Nov. 28 – Dec. 9, 4:30-6:00 PM
Dress Rehearsal:
Performance: Dec. 9, 7PM

Participants will enjoy the musical theatre production process at an age appropriate level in this two week camp. Everyone gets a part to play, costumes, lights, props…and most importantly- an audience to enjoy the hard work! Check out this storyline: It’s the holiday season at the North Pole, and Elfis the Elf is singin’ and swingin’ in style! All of the gang there love to hear him play his guitar and perform. Santa Claus is particularly fond of Elfis and his music, and as a surprise, he decides to find a band for Elfis. The newly formed group is called, “Elfis and The Sleigh Riders.” Alas, as it sometimes happens, not all goes well.
Despite the best efforts of the elves, the reindeer, and even Santa and Mrs. Claus, the band members are too angry to even talk to each other. Elfis intervenes with a poignant reminder of the value and importance of friendship and communication. Once again, Elfis and The Sleigh Riders are back together and rockin’ better than ever at the North Pole! In this classic rock’n’roll rendition of elf meets band, elf loses band, elf gets band, the message is the nurturing of friendships.
