THE HAPPY ELF
The Atchison County Drama Club of ACCJSHS, through special arrangement with Music Theatre International, is proud to present Harry Connick Jr.’s “The Happy Elf” November 13, 14 and 15, 2015. A new musical comedy by Grammy Award-winning and TONY Award-nominated composer and lyricist, Harry Connick, Jr.; “The Happy Elf” tells the tale of Eubie the Elf (Kolten Coy), the happiest elf in the North Pole. More than anything else, Eubie longs to be a part of Santa's (Paul English) sleigh team, along with his pals, Hamm (Jacob Chalfant) and Gilda (Keastra Gilliland). Head Elf Nora (Mallory Eckert) has other plans for Eubie, and he ends up stuck checking the naughty-or-nice lists. That’s when he discovers something strange: in the whole town of Bluesville, not a single person has been nice for years! Heading up the list of naughty Bluesville citizens are Molly (Madison Meeks) and Curtis (Ryder McAlexander). With a pinch of elfish magic and a magical whoosh, Eubie's off to Bluesville to find Molly and Curtis and get this town into the Christmas spirit. But can he turn a whole town of naughty children nice in just one day? Families will love this festive tale of overcoming adversity, friendship, the power of positivity and believing in yourself. “The Happy Elf” is destined to become a holiday classic.
