Rehearsals are winding down as opening night gets closer for the Christian Youth Theater's debut of their newest project "Elf, Jr.". The Christian Youth Theater (CYT) is an after-school theater training program that helps develop students with performing arts and immerses them in all aspects of theater and performance. CYT offers classes in drama, voice, dance, and specialty classes throughout the year. At the end of each of the 3 "sessions", the program produces and performs a broadway-style production the students perform in. This session will be the famous adaptation of "Elf".

Recently, Buddy the Elf took a tour of the Prien Lake Mall to help us all get into the Christmas spirit as the performance dates get closer and closer. Local Lake Charles photographer Emily Fuselier was able to capture some amazing pictures of our visitor of the North Pole as he toured around to bring Christmas cheer.

The story of Elf, Jr. is adapted from the movie starring Will Ferrel and follows our orphan Elf friend around the big city of New York in order for him to find his father. Buddy learns that not only is his father on the naughty list, but his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa Claus! Buddy works his hardest to bring Christmas cheery back to the city of New York, and Lake Charles, to help remind us all about the true meaning of Christmas.

Throughout the performance, you'll be entertained with humor and amazing ensembles from groups of elves and fellow "New Yorkers". Opening night for the public will be Friday, November 4 at 7:00 pm with 4 shows in total that weekend. Tickets can be purchased HERE. Tickets are $20 each and are selling fast!
