Johnson Central Players prepare for ‘Elf: The Musical’

The Johnson Central Players will continue their December production of “Elf: The Musical” this year, with dates on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The Johnson Central Players will be continuing their Christmas production of “Elf: The Musical” this year at the Historic SIPP Theater, beginning on Thursday and lasting through Saturday, according to JCHS Players Director Emily Warne.

The show begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday, and Warne said the show has a special purpose this year as the chase spotlight the Players previously used has since become unusable and the troop is seeking to replace that spotlight and help fund their springtime production of “Shrek.”

The production will run through Saturday, keeping the 7 p.m. show time on Friday and having a 1 p.m. show time on Saturday, in addition to the 7 p.m. time.

Warne said the troop has put in more than 140 hours of practice for this production and that they look forward to it each year.

“We are honored to continue this holiday tradition for Johnson County,” Warne said. “It’s worth the work and we enjoy being able to help spread a little Christmas cheer. We’d greatly appreciate if everyone came out and checked out the show these kids have worked so hard on and helped us reach our goal and replace the spotlight.”

Kids will be able to meet Santa in the lobby of the SIPP on all three dates.

Tickets are on sale online through Wednesday evening, with adult tickets running $10, while kids tickets are $6 and children below age four get in for free.
