JCC Film/Drama Club to Present 'The Littlest Elf' on Dec. 8-10, 2023

Published: November 14, 2023

The Jefferson Community College (JCC) Dionysian Players turned Film/Drama Club will present a holiday musical titled, The Littlest Elf, on December 8 and 9 at 6:30 p.m. and on December 10 at 2:00 p.m. in the Robert R. and Jean S. Sturtz Theater. Bring the whole family for a fun, festive evening including seasonal favorites and some original songs, and a visit from Santa! Tickets are on sale now. 

The Littlest Elf, written and directed by Michael R. Kinnie, advisor of the JCC Film/Drama Club, takes place Christmas Eve at the North Pole where the elves are preparing to put on a Christmas Pageant for Santa before his famous sleigh ride around the world. As most people know, singing Christmas carols helps fatten up Santa’s magic for the long winter’s journey. One Christmas, a new elf comes to the North Pole, but doesn’t have a song to sing for Santa. All the elves try to help, and chaos ensues. JCC film/drama club president, Tifany Gill, commented, “This is a production that is sure to make audience members of all ages laugh!” 

The Littlest Elf debuted in the 1990’s at the Lake Ontario Playhouse, a theatre Kinnie founded and ran for many years in Sackets Harbor. The production at Jefferson is a joint effort of the JCC Film/Drama Club, Stage Notes, Inc., and the Thousand Islands Screen and Dramatic Arts (TISDA), Inc., who is providing the elfettes, an ensemble of 4-6th grade students, and the littlest elf. It is choreographed by Shareen Daly and musical director is Ticia Aumell, Stage Notes.

Admission is free for JCC students who present their SUNY ID, $10 for adults, $5 for children/teens, and $25 for a family pass. Admission on Friday evening, December 8, is free for youth ages 12 and under. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets will be available for sale at the door. Cash concessions will be open.

Proceeds benefit the JCC Film/Drama Club and Thousand Islands Screen and Dramatic Arts, Inc.
