"Elfis and the Elves Get All Shook Up" is a "Rise and Shine" musical specifically designed to be performed on choral risers. The "Rise and Shine" musicals are creatively designed with shortened performance times and limited use of staging and props. In this mini-musical, Elfis decides the elves are always working so hard during the holiday season that they never see how other cultures celebrate. After talking Santa into letting him borrow the sleigh, Elfis takes the elves on a whirlwind tour. They get an opportunity to observe holiday celebrations including La Posada, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas gift wrapping. Through this exciting musical journey, the performers and audience learn that our different celebrations should not set us apart. With an easy-to-memorize script and flexible cast size, this budget-stretching reproducible holiday musical will fill the needs of the busy music teacher while delighting students and audiences with its heartfelt message. 18 minutes.
