Students perform 'The Happy Elf' at Cal U's Steele Hall.

Community members ages 5-50 will join Cal U students onstage and behind the scenes when the Department of Music and Theatre performs The Happy Elf, a musical comedy based on a song by Grammy award-winner Harry Connick Jr.

Showtimes are 7 p.m. Dec. 7-9 and 2 p.m. Dec. 9-10 in Steele Hall Mainstage Theatre. All performances are open to the public. Children from area school districts will attend a special performance at 10 a.m. Dec. 8.

“Our audiences really enjoyed this holiday performance last year, so we are excited to be producing this show once again,” said Dr. Michele Pagen, who directs the production. “We always enjoy working alongside members of the community, who become part of our theatre family. 

“There have been many changes this year, and we are having a great time.”

The family-friendly musical comedy tells the story of Eubie the Elf, one of Santa's helpers, whose rose-colored view of the holiday season is put to the test when he sets out to bring Christmas joy to a dreary town called Bluesville.
