Audition Description

Elf the Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s 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, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner Elf.

  • Role #1 - Santa Claus

    Santa Claus has a lot on his plate during the Christmas season, and it is starting to show. He is annoyed with the Elves, tired of lying to Buddy, and sad that people seem to be losing their Christmas spirit. He is still the same jolly old St. Nick underneath it all, but the job is getting to him. This is a great role for a character performer who can play an older (and somewhat cranky) man while trying hard to keep his holiday spirit.

Hello. I am Rushia Cooper. I recently signed up with Explore Talent in October. I am a 33 year old business woman, who is a mother of two and wife for nine years. I have always been told that I should be an actor because of my personality and flare for style. I didn't know how to break into acting from my level, no formal training or connections. I found the link for Explore Talent and decided to give it a try. I spoke with Sal and he was awesome. He was very thorough and upfront and explained the process to me in detail. I am very serious about my career but I did not want to waste my time or money. Speaking with Sal helped to ease my concerns. Everytime I call with a question he is enthusiastic about helping me and I am grateful. I was sceptacle at first but within 2 weeks of becoming a member I was picked to work in a Lee Jeans Promotion making $14.00 per hr. It's not the dream acting job I am persuing but it is a start, and it shows that Explore Talent does what they advertise; your company is in business to promote talent, and I am very pleased with your services. The business cards are beautiful and I look forward to gaining recognition with them while promoting your services at the same time. Rushia Cooper
