WMS to perform ‘Elf Jr.’

[ccfic caption-text format="plaintext"]

"Elf Jr." is set to be performed at Wellesley Middle School from November 30 through December 2.

Based on the beloved holiday film, this hilarious comedy follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity. Raised by Santa at the North Pole, good-natured Buddy is filled with Christmas joy year-round, though he's not very good at making toys. When he learns he's actually a human rather than an elf, Buddy sets off to New York City in search of his father, who's on Santa's "naughty" list.

Four elves (clockwise from bottom left): Julia Colone, Caitlin Cason, Suzie Kim, Georgia Spangler.

Admission is $14 for adults, $8 for students and seniors. Tickets are available online at: https://wellesleyps.org/performingarts/performances

In the spirit of Buddy the Elf, attendees are asked to consider sharing the joy of the holidays with a child. At all four performances of "Elf Jr.," the production will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Foundation's Toys for Tots drive. Donation bins will be located in the WMS lobby.
