Friday, October 1 & Saturday, October 2

7:30 p.m.

Have you always wanted to perform in the spotlight? Well this is your chance! Gather your friends and family and get ready for two evenings of interactive entertainment at the Colonial Center! Audience members will be encouraged to participate in the show by registering to sing when they arrive at the theatre on show night! Buster Freeze will provide keyboard accompaniment for audience members who want a chance to get up onstage and feel the thrill of wowing an audience. A large catalog of songs will be available to choose from, or you may bring your own sheet music for Buster to play.

Some of the Colonial Actors Theatre Society’s most popular performers will be in the audience waiting for their turn to sing, but newcomers are encouraged to give it a shot! Come as you are and get ready to have some fun with your friends and neighbors.

Seating will be general admission. 

Registration to perform will only be open to people ages 16 and up, but all ages are welcome to come and watch the show! Registration will begin when the doors open at 7:00 p.m. on each show night. Each show will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will end by no later than 9:30 p.m. so register as soon as you arrive in order to ensure you get a chance to shine!

ELF – THE MUSICAL

Saturday, December 4, at 2:30 p.m.

Saturday, December 4, at 7:30 p.m.

Friday, December 10, at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, December 11, at 7:30 p.m.

Sunday, December 12, at 2:30 p.m.

After a harsh 2020 and 2021 season at the Colonial Center due to the ongoing pandemic, the difficult decision has been made to cancel the C.A.T.S. Community Theatre production of ELF: The Musical in December 2021. This decision was not made lightly and many options were explored prior to deciding the cancellation was necessary due to: The recent rise in COVID cases in Mecklenburg County and surrounding areas, the large cast size required for this production, the number of unvaccinated children who would need to be involved in the show, and the risks of COVID exposures and infections over a ten-week-long rehearsal and production period.

We would like to thank the Town of South Hill, J.A. Barker Construction Company, and Williams Enterprises for their willingness to sponsor ELF: The Musical, and we hope everyone will understand that we are putting the health and safety of our performers, volunteers, staff, audience members, and community, at the forefront in our decision-making process. 

Our 2022 season of events will be announced in the coming weeks and we are working hard to provide opportunities to get our C.A.T.S. performers back onstage safely in the coming year.

Refunds will be issued for all tickets which have already been purchased for ELF: The Musical. Please call the Colonial Center Box Office at (434) 262-4170 to request a refund.
