Following on from the success of Beauty and The Beast, St. John Fisher Catholic High School is proud to announce that in a Harrogate premiere, they will be producing 'Elf the Musical' in late November 2023.

Over 80 students were told the exciting news at break this morning with auditions starting after Easter.

Elf tells the story of Buddy Hobbs, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa Claus' bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. After discovering the baby, Santa and his elves decide to raise the child as an elf. Years later, Buddy finds out that he's actually a human being and, at Santa's prompting, heads off to New York City in search of his father, Walter Hobbs. 

Fans of the classic movie will recognize their favourite scenes, and the added musical numbers are a treat for the whole family. Elf The Musical is everything a Christmas musical should be. It touches your heart, brings a bit of Christmas magic, and just makes you feel good. Tickets will go on sale in September 2023 - we hope to see you there for some festive cheer!
