CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

BUDDY

Born a human but raised at the North Pole as a Christmas Elf, Buddy is eager to find his place in the world. He is a child at heart and that child-like curiosity makes him both endearing and gets him into trouble. Irrepressible. Doesn’t need to be Will Ferrell, just needs to be believable, excitable, pure, and full of heart. Kimmy Schmidt meets Wall-E meets Charlie Bucket

Age: Play 25-35

Range: High Baritone/Tenor. Low A flat to High C

 

JOVIE

Buddy’s girlfriend. She works at Macy’s and has a bit of a cynical outlook on life and love because of the men she’s dated. She is caught off guard by Buddy’s genuinely big heart. She needs to learn to believe. Amalia Balash meets Peter Venkman.

Age: Plays 25 to 35

Range: Mezz/Alto. G (below middle C) to high F. Strong belt.

 

WALTER

Buddy’s workaholic father. He is a Children’s book writer but lacks any of the childlike spirit that Buddy has. He’s a genuinely good guy who has become selfish, tense, and angry with his life because his work has become the only thing. He needs to learn to believe. George Banks meets The Baker.

Age: Plays 45-60

Range: High Baritone/Tenor. Low A to high G.

 

EMILY

Walter’s wife. Successful and strong. Though she is kind and willing to take him in, she thinks Buddy is crazy at first. Values family first. Leigh Anne Touhy meets Mirabel from Encanto.

Age: Plays 40 to 50

Range: Mezzo. A flat (below middle C) to D. Strong belt.

 

MICHAEL

Buddy’s stepbrother is excited to have a new friend and brother. Unlike his mother, he doesn’t take much convincing to have Christmas spirit, but like his mother, he wishes his father would spend more time with the family. Smart and fearless. Kevin McAllister meets Annie.

Age: Plays 10-12

Range: Soprano/Mezzo. F (below middle C) to high G. Strong belt.

 

DEB

Walter’s secretary. Takes an instant liking to Buddy simply for the novelty of it. Though she aims to please and is a bit of a suck-up, she feels underappreciated. Donkey meets Leslie Knope.

Age: Plays 25 to 55

Range: Mezz/Alto. Middle C to D. Strong belt.

 

MANAGER

A stressed-out manager at Macy’s. He is a good guy just trying to do his job and get by. Tired of it all, but still doing it all. Tevye meets Larry David.

Age: Plays 35 to 40

 

GREENWAY

Walter’s boss. They are what Walter will become if he continues down the path he is on. A tyrannical, workaholic who cares nothing about the people around them or who work for them. Miranda Priestly meets Mr. Burns.

Age: Plays 50 to 65

Range: High Baritone/Tenor. D sharp to high A.

 

SANTA

Just another workingman. Loves his job and Christmas, but also likes to kick back and watch the game when a rare opportunity arises. A natural storyteller. Carl Fredericksen meets Man in Chair.

Age: Santa Age

Range: Baritone. Low A to E above middle C.

 

ELVES

The happiest, jolliest, pluckiest, can-do bunch of North Pole elves you can possibly imagine. Will also be included (as non-elves) in New York City scenes visiting Santa, Ice Skating, and playing at Central Park.

Age: Children 8 and up, and 5’ tall or less

 

ENSEMBLE

Ensemble tracks for Elf are busy, and every track includes spoken dialogue, solos, and highlighted moments. We’re looking for high-energy people who can play a variety of roles with lots of flavor and believability. Singing and dancing/moving, obviously, are a must.

Please Note

Theatre is subjective. The most important part is the audition itself. However, many factors go into casting a production, such as height, weight, look, personality, acting ability, conflicts, past experience, presence, work ethic, doubles, doubles conflicts, age, etc. If we were not able to use you in a past production, please continue to audition. Our production team strives to provide a safe environment in which to promote artistic expression. Break a leg!
