Kermit the Frog plays Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets -- Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases -- past, present, and future, in muppet fashion, of course.

ELF Jr is based on the beloved holiday film starring Will Farrell.  In this holiday comedy at the Mansfield Playhouse, the story follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity. Buddy, a young orphan, 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. And so the journey for Buddy begins as he makes his way to NYC to find his real father. 

Final weekend production dates include Friday and Saturday, December 14 & 15 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, December 16, at 2:30 pm.
