Mount Vernon City Schools presents Elf The Musical JR on November 10th at 7:30pm and November 11th at 3:00pm and 7:30pm.

The play features students in grades 4 through 12 and will be held in the Mount Vernon High School Theater.

The musical tells the story of a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is given the name Buddy and raised by elves in the North Pole. Buddy lives happily 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 reality that his father is on the naughty list, and his stepbrother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of the holidays.

Tickets are $8.00. Tickets can be reserved by filling out a form on the school website,
