Three holiday 2021 shows come to Lakewood


It's time to spread holiday cheer! Join us for Elf - the Musical, Elf Jr, the musical, and Peppermint Bear. Three great holiday shows in November and December.


Elf-the Musical, Nov 5 - Dec 19

The holiday season is approaching fast, and what better way to kick it off than with a hilarious family musical! Lakewood Theatre Company presents Elf - The Musical on the Headlee Mainstage at Lakewood Center for the Arts November 5 – December 19. This show marks the theatre’s second mainstage show since re-emerging from the pandemic.

The story: 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 realities that his father is on the naughty list and 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.

Elf Jr, a one hour abbreviated version of Elf, Saturdays Dec 11 & 18 at 2:00 PM

Elf the Musical Jr is a one-hour condensed, author-approved version of the full-length musical. It is custom-tailored to the talent of young actors.


The Peppermint Bear Show: Peppermint Bear and the Toy Elves, Dec. 11, 12, 18, 19, and 20

Plans are underway for Christmas with the usual toy making, package wrapping, cookie baking work for the elves when in walks Seymour B. Liverworth, a fast-talking con man who convinces the elves that his “amusemachine” will revolutionize the toy-making industry. In reality, as each elf steps into the machine, they are turned into life-sized toys. It's up to Charlie, Seymour’s supposed assistant, and Peppermint Bear, to save Christmas!

Performances will be in Lakewood Center's Community Meeting Room at Lakewood at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM on Saturdays December 11, 12, 18, 19, and 20, 2021. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for students. Advance reservations are required. Tickets will go on sale soon.

Audience members enjoy a special holiday continental breakfast 1/2 hour before the show and performers interact with young audience members to help them celebrate the holidays. There will even be a visit by a man in a red suit! The performance is suitable for ages 3-12.
