Elf the Musical Jr.

Dec. 8 and 15
Roseville Theatre Arts Academy
Buddy, an orphan, decides to sneak into Santa’s bag of toys and he’s taken to the North Pole. Raised as an elf, it becomes painfully clear because of his size and terrible toy making abilities, he’s actually a human. Santa lets Buddy go to New York to find his family and as he does, he also helps them, and the city re-discover the joy of Christmas.

If Your Goat Faints, Can You Still Get Eggnog?

Dec. 13 and 14
Roseville Theatre Arts Academy
Sibling rivalry, a threatened Feta Festival and fainting goats that stop fainting – what’s not to like? An investigation into the fainting dilemma and the rally for the festival brings home the points to be true to yourself and working together to solve a problem – with a little Christmas spirit thrown in.

The Nutcracker
