HPAC Enrichment Classes

The Hendersonville Performing Arts Company begins its’ Fall Student Program on September 15th with classes on Saturday mornings from 9:00 a.m. until noon and will run through December 13th. Elf the Musical Jr. will be presented December 14th, 15th and 16th. A title known the world over, Elf the Musical JR. features songs by Tony Award-nominees, Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin.

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 reality that his father is on the naughty list and that 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 modern-day holiday classic is sure to make every young performer embrace his or her "inner elf" with plenty of large ensemble numbers featuring elves and (New Yorkers) of every type! The Fall Student Program will be held at the Hendersonville Performing Arts Company, 260 West Main St., Suite 204 in Hendersonville.
