and Dec. 17, 18, 20, 21 & 22, 9:00am & 11:00am
Christmas is just around the corner and the head elf, Mert, is attempting to rehearse the big parade with Gert and Mort when our young friend, Charlie, arrives at the North Pole. It seems there is some electronic problem with toy-making machinery and Santa needs his help. Little do we know that the problem lies in one magic magnet carried by has-been director, Percy Ulysses Featherby, who has been reduced to a shoe salesman. He is supposedly at the North Pole to provide the elves with new shoes, but his plan is to use the magnet to control one particular pair of shoes and to make an enslaved dancing star out of Gert.
The Peppermint Bear show is a classic at Lakewood Theatre Company and it’s perfect for families and full of holiday cheer.
Elf–The Musical Jr.
Dec. 10 & 17, 2022 at 1:00 PM & 4:00 PM
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 realities that his father is on the naughty list and 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.
This shortened Jr. production will feature local youth actors in all roles! They are thrilled to share their incredible talent with you.
