    Character Breakdown

    Buddy (THIS ROLE HAS BEEN CAST)
    Born a human but raised at the North Pole as a Christmas Elf, Buddy is eager to find his place in the world. He is a child at heart and that child-like curiosity makes him both endearing and gets him into trouble.

    Jovie
    Buddy's girlfriend. She works at Macy's and has a bit of a cynical outlook on life and love because of the men she's dated. She is caught off guard by Buddy's genuinely big heart.

    Gender: Male

    Age: 12 to 16
    Vocal range top: G5
    Vocal range bottom: F3
