So, are there a lot of changes in this show that mark a departure from the movie? "The show has just the right amount of references back to the origi- nal," says Weagle, "while still manag- ing to stand alone for anyone who has never seen 'Elf' before in their life. If you liked 'Elf' the movie, you will love 'Elf: The Musical.'" Dyer finds that "the high energy dance and musical numbers" separates the movie from the show. "The cos- tumes in conjunction with the music is really fun. I've had so much fun teach- ing the score. We have some outstand- ing vocalists." The director, music director and actor all agree on one thing – they're having a terrific time working on "Elf Jr." and watching the whole show come together. "The production staff is working endless hours and you can never tell which way things will go," says Tognacci. "Tech week is known for many surprises that you some- times don't see coming. You have to be mentally prepared that things may not go to schedule, and delays may occur. As long as you think fast and don't waste time everything will come together." "Don't be a cotton-headed ninny muggins," says Tognacci, 'because the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. And com- ing to the show of course." The Stadium Theatre presents "Elf Jr.: The Musical" Friday and Saturday, Nov. 16-17. Visit www.stadiumtheatre.com or call 401- 762-4545 for tickets and information. 'ELF JR.'
