If you’ve been a good girl or boy and have already seen The Santaland Diaries this year, then you know that we’ve added Elfcappella! An all-elf acappella group that sings you right into the show! The group is made up of apprentices from our 2014-2015 apprentice company.
And they were coached by our very own group sales manager/acappella extraordinaire, Tim Harland.

Interested in who was singing the “go pee now” version of Let It Go? Check out Elfcappella below!

Chaz-094Chaz Duffy is a recent magna cum laude graduate of High Point University and an Atlanta native who is thrilled to be a part of The Santaland Diaries. Over the last year Chaz has stayed busy with roles as Mr. Vaan Dan in The Diary of Anne Frank, Rapunzel’s Prince in Into the Woods, Florizel in The Winter’s Tale and Mitch in A Streetcar Named Desire. Chaz is also an alumnus of HPU’s male acappella group The Toccatatones, and last year was one of five nominees by the Contemporary Acappella Recording Association in the Best Male Soloist category. When he isn’t on stage, you may find him beat-boxing, perusing old leather-bound books, or taking a walk in the woods. Chaz would like to thank his parents, collaborators, and professors for helping him get this far, and the Horizon Theatre apprentices for where they will continue to take him.


Justine Vadini is a member of Horizon Theatre’s Acting Apprentice Company. She is thrilled to make her professional theatre debut in The Santaland Diaries this year. Justine would like to thank her fellow apprentices and everyone else at Horizon for all of the inspiration and love they emanate. She would also like to thank her new home, Atlanta, for providing the same. Pray for ArtsTL!
