ELF – The Musical is here!

Dear Parents,

WIS’s most awaited event, ELF – The Musical is here! Presented by Circle in the Water, the performance arm of the Creative Arts faculty at WIS, this year’s production filled with an amazing cast of over 200 students taking roles as actors, musicians, costume and set designers, is a true reflection of all that is community!

This year’s school musical will take place on two nights: Thursday 6 and Friday 7 December, from 7:00 pm onwards, at the 3/F WIS auditorium. Audience tickets are priced at $160 for adults and $100 for students. You do not need to order a ticket for your child if they are in the show.

And that’s not all! A pre-show entertainment has been planned for families from 6:00 pm -7:00 pm, that will include cookie decoration, arts & crafts stations and photo booths with a variety of exciting props to choose from, including our very own Santa! While you are enjoying the pre show entertainment guests can enjoy a meal for $50 (veg/non-veg) including a drink. Light refreshments will also be on sale (cash bar) before the show and during interval.

Based on a beloved holiday film, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity. A young orphan, Buddy 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 realities that his father is on the naughty list and 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.

A celebration of family, resilience, love and laughter the essence of all that we need to flourish as humans, this modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf! After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear!!
