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. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

The Elves are Santa s special helpers who love their job making toys to meet their Christmas Eve deadline.
Charlie is in charge of monitoring the other Elves, making sure every present is wrapped and every bow is tied.
Shawanda is a dependable and caring elf. She will do whatever she can to help out others, including Buddy, even though she accidentally reveals that he is a human.
Sam is one of Walter s Office Staff who is in a bind at the top of the show.
Security Guard #1 and Security Guard #2 are a stern duo from Walter s office, making sure everyone who enters has permission.
The Saleswoman is the first person to greet Buddy as he enters Macy s. She s the consummate sales person: smiling, overfriendly, and always trying to sell something.
The manager is a terrific featured acting role for a performer with good comedic timing. As the manager of Macy s, he s doing everything he can to make sure all the employees stay in line.
Santa's Helper works as a Macy s Employee and announces when each kid gets to visit with Santa. This is a good ensemble role for a performer with a loud voice.
Fake Santa is a poor replacement for the real Santa. He s an employee of Macy s who is a bit rough around the edges. Fake Santa should be played by a performer who is unafraid of being a little over-the-top and has good physical control of his body.
Policeman #1 and Policeman #2 are a friendly pair of cops who return Buddy to the Hobbs household. These are perfect featured roles for two ensemble members.
Mr. Greenway is one of the crankiest businessmen around. He is the big boss, so look for an older student with a commanding presence to tackle this acting role.
Chadwick and Matthews
Chadwick and Matthews are staff members at Walter's office who are doing everything they can think of to save the day and make their boss happy.
Charlotte Dennon is a TV reporter with a big personality. She does her best to keep her professional persona in public and doesn t like being shown up.
Darlene Lambert and Emma Van Brocklin
Darlene Lambert and Emma Van Brocklin are on the scene in Central Park and are convinced of Santa s magic after Buddy reveals their past Christmas gifts
