A very thoughtful and witty show. Great performance by Christi Pedigo as Bunny the Elf, the former Musical Theater Auditioner who finds her true calling through her work as a Christmas elf in a toy store. Bunny is ditzy but utterly sincere and endearing. Her behind the scenes stories of the business of elfing, and the various bad behaviors of both parents and children are hilarious.

Very well done and a refreshing change of pace at this Summer's Fringe.... full review

Bunny is simply adorable. And so is Christi Pedigo. A heartwarming, all-to-painfully-relatable story about life in the entertainment business and making your rent. Christmas in June is always a good thing and Bunny takes a woeful tale of trying to scratch by as an entertainer and turns it into an inspiring warm fuzzy holiday in your heart.... full review

A delightful story that shares the experience of a hopeful musical theatre actor doing what she can to make ends meet. It's a journey any artist can relate to, no matter where their creativity falls. Christi Pedigo is an effervescent breath of fresh onstage as Bunny the Elf. ... full review
