Auditions are next week!!
Here is a character break down for ELF.
Elf is a great ensemble show.
Buddy
Born a human but raised at the North Pole as a Christmas Elf, Buddy is eager to find his place in the world. He is a child at heart and that child-like curiosity makes him both endearing and gets him into trouble.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: Ab2Jovie
Buddy’s girlfriend. She works at Macy’s and has a bit of a cynical outlook on life and love because of the men she’s dated. She is caught off guard by Buddy’s genuinely big heart.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: D5
Vocal range bottom: G3

Walter
Buddy’s workaholic father. He is a Children’s book writer, but lacks any of the childlike spirit that Buddy has. He is selfish, tense, and generally angry with life.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: G4
Vocal range bottom: A2

Emily
Walter’s wife. Though she is sweet and willing to take him in, she thinks Buddy is crazy at first. Wishes her husband would spend more time with the family.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: Eb5
Vocal range bottom: F3

Michael
Buddy’s stepbrother who is excited to have a new friend and brother. Unlike his mother, he doesn’t take much convincing to have Christmas spirit, but like his mother, he wishes his father would spend more time with the family.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: G5
Vocal range bottom: F3

Deb
Walter’s secretary. Takes an instant liking to Buddy simply for the novelty of it. Though she aims to please and is a bit of a suck-up, she feels under appreciated.
Gender: Female

Manager
A heavy-set manager at Macy’s. He is a good, friendly guy just trying to do his job and get by.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: F#4

Greenway
Walter’s boss. He is what Walter will become if he continues down the path he is on. A tyrannical, workaholic who cares nothing about the people around him or who work for him.
Gender: Male

Santa
Just another workingman. Loves his job and Christmas, but also likes to kick-back and watch the game when a rare opportunity arises. A natural storyteller.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: E4
Vocal range bottom: A2

Chadwick
One of Walter’s right-hand men. He is desperate to keep his job, and perhaps the dumber of the two.
Gender: Male

Matthews
One of Walter’s right-hand men. He is desperate to keep his job and is the schemer of the two.
Gender: Male
