Las Vegas Little Theater Announces Auditions for Heartwarming Holiday Hit: Elf The Musical
Las Vegas Little Theater is thrilled to announce open auditions for “Elf The Musical,” a heartwarming holiday production. Auditions will be held in person on Monday, September 18, and Tuesday, September 19, from 7 to 9 pm.
This festive production is scheduled to run from December 1 to December 17, 2023, with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 2 pm, and a special Saturday matinee on December 9th at 2 pm.
“Elf The Musical” tells the delightful story of Buddy, a young orphan who accidentally finds himself at the North Pole. Unaware of his human identity, Buddy grows up among Santa’s elves until his size and toy-making skills reveal the truth. Determined to reconnect with his birth father in New York City, Buddy embarks on a heartwarming journey to spread the true meaning of Christmas.
All roles are open, and auditionees are encouraged to prepare a song from the show or a Broadway-style song that showcases their vocal talents. Sheet music in the appropriate key is required, and participants should be ready for movement exercises and cold readings from the script.
Don’t miss the chance to be part of this magical holiday production and help Las Vegas embrace the spirit of Christmas.
The Las Vegas Little Theater (LVLT) is a community theater in Las Vegas, Nevada. Founded in 1978, it is the oldest operating small theater in the valley. The theater offers a variety of productions throughout the year, including musicals, dramas, comedies, and children’s theater. It is located at 3920 Schiff Drive near the corner of Spring Mountain and Valley View.
In recent weeks, a noteworthy transformation has unfolded at Shibuyala. The Japanese skin care and cosmetic store has successfully transitioned into a new identity as “Reiwatakiya,” reflecting a change in focus.
While the exterior signage still bears the previous name, “Shibulaya,” the establishment has officially embraced the name “Reiwatakiya.” Plans are in progress for the installation of fresh signage that will align with this rebranding.
Reiwatakiya, a global cosmeceutical brand originating in Japan, specializes in cosmetics and personal care items, delighting thousands of customers monthly with Japanese culture-infused products. With branches in Boston, New York, Markham, London, Las Vegas and a vision for further expansion, they uphold values of “challenge,” “evolution,” and “diversity.” Renowned for offering top-tier Japanese skincare and beauty products, Reiwatakiya has established a robust image in the beauty industry as partners with various well-known brands.
Their product range includes cosmetics (foundation, concealer, blush, etc.), skincare (cleansers, serums, etc.), hair care (shampoo, styling products, etc.), body care (soap, lotion, etc.), and various other items like fragrances and accessories.
At the northwest side of the plaza, nestled amidst Dagu Rice, Sul & Beans, Somi Somi, and Tea Maison, the former location of “The Black” store is undergoing a remarkable transformation. It’s evolving into a dynamic DIY kids’ workplace, highlighting the adaptability of spaces in the ever-changing retail landscape.
While transitioning from retail to a DIY kids workspace isn’t the most unconventional change, it certainly represents a significant shift in purpose, emphasizing their dedication to providing a unique experience. We encourage you to track the captivating journey of this transformation, from the brand’s evolution to the remarkable reshaping of the physical space.
