A new musical comedy by the Grammy Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated composer and lyricist, Harry Connick, Jr.’s The Happy Elf tells the tale of Eubie the Elf, a lovable fellow who wants to spread Christmas joy throughout the town of Bluesville. Slidell Little Theatre presents the holiday treat on weekends from November 24 through December 10.
Hoping to introduce a new generation of children to the joys of jazz, Connick has crafted a musical landscape against which Eubie’s story unfolds. Eubie the Elf loves working in Santa Claus’ workshop up at the North Pole, despite the other elves’ complaints about being annoyed by his overly happy personality. One Christmas Eve morning, Eubie’s boss, Norbert, assigns him to checking the naughty and nice lists. However, while checking the lists, Eubie discovers that every child in the town of Bluesville is naughty. So, he decides to go to Bluesville and spread Christmas cheer.
