Bunny the Elf LIVE!
A Musical Theatre Nerd, forced by her family to give up her dreams, gets a real job in the real world... as a toy store Christmas elf. In 2014, Pedigo wrote, directed, and starred as the quirky and lovable Roberta Aires, aka Bunny, for the YouTube series Hire Me! Bunny then found a job as a toy store elf in the spin off series Bunny the Elf which ran for 24 short episodes with thousands of views on YouTube and Amazon Prime Video. Pedigo is excited to bring Bunny back on stage where Bunny gets to share her elfing journey with a special update on what job she is looking forward to doing next!

“Christi Pedigo is a talented, versatile actress and writer, and she has created Bunny the Elf out of her own experiences working as a Christmas Elf at FAO Schwarz in New York… Pedigo’s performance is pitch-perfect throughout: the slightly loopy voice, the radiant smile, the limitless physicality, the endearing sincerity project a character we can’t help but love… Pedigo’s work in this show is thoroughly impressive. Her writing is honest and witty… Pedigo has found a wonderful vehicle in Bunny to showcase both her acting and writing talent…” – Scotty Keister

Written and Produced by Christi Pedigo; Directed by Rose London; Starring: Christi Pedigo

A breath of fresh air! The joy of Christmas in June is really possible. A refreshing introspective on how to take the metaphorical fruitcake of purposelessness and create the delicious life you really want, making your everyday rich like the holiday. Christi has boundless energy in performance. Her creative storyline is takes some great twists as she takes us through what it's really like working during the holiday season in a major retailer. The determination and fortitude of Bunny while encountering some ulterior motives and inappropriate behaviors of people in the business balances this piece and makes it real. The costume changes and stage decor were also adorable. I can totally see this show turned into a Christmas tv movie!

This show delivers on everything you would want in a holiday story …and I so appreciated getting all those warm fuzzy feelings off-season. It was fun and optimistic. Christi’s sincerity and enthusiasm shines through this character and it would be impossible not to fall in love with her. Despite there being an overall cheery sheen, the writer does not shy away from bigger themes such as sexual harassment and the age-old Christmas lesson of gratitude.

A funny, charming cotton-candy feeling from start to finish – with a surprisingly moving and emotional surprise along the way. Christi is a wonderful performer who captures such innocence and joy and gives that right back to the audience – even though her very smart writing tells a much more worldly truth about dreams and “happy holidays.” The juxtaposition makes for such a fun, and ultimately moving, ride along the way.

Spoiler Alert: This Elfin Rocks! A fun and delightfully sweet Christmas romp. Christi is charming and funny and her shoes alone are not to be missed. Wonderful Christmas fun for the whole family!

Bunny the Elf Live was a surprisingly complete show. It was poignant, funny, and if you consider Bunny a singer, a musical a la Darlene Edwards. The story line was flowing, the story line just complicated enough. And it was a one-woman show. Christi aka Bunny is very talented. Her timing, flawless. I recommend the show to everyone who believes in hope.

It was everything I hoped it would be and more. Bunny the Elf is a delightful character. She’s naive but enthusiastic and achingly sincere. Christi Pedigo creates a world where a grown woman believes in the magic of Christmas. When the main character is a bit of dim bulb, you don’t expect the writing to be crisp and smart.

Go spend an hour with Bunny.

Bunny The Elf Live was an amazing show, everything about it was perfect. Christi Pedigo is a gifted actress and a very talented writer. The part where bunny is interviewing for jobs is very relatable. The show left me feeling like it was really Christmas.

Bunny the Elf LIVE was delightful! I really felt like I was actually experiencing Bunny’s triumphs and defeats. Christi Pedigo is a very talented writer and performer. I liked how Bunny was a musical theatre nerd and referenced a bunch of broadway shows. The emotional arc of the show was great. I left feeling like Bunny was a friend of mine!

Christi Pedigo is adorable, and charming and a wonderful storyteller. She takes you on a whimsical journey for purpose and it’s real, believable, and touching. I expected a delightfully fun hour. This was more than that. It's a super fun hour that surprises you with its heart at the end, courtesy of a gifted performer and storyteller.

Just saw “Bunny the Elf LIVE” and it was so funny, I laughed my butt off. So glad to see not only an amazing talented performance, but the jokes and the complexity of a character. Props to the star of the show who wrote it herself and showed off many different characters in just one hour.

I’m so glad I was able to purchase a ticket before it sold out

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.

I never knew I needed this Christmas show in June, but boy did I! Christi Pedigo has developed a show that is full of light, heart, humor, and meaning, and I couldn't recommend it enough. She carries this one woman show like a champion, but you forget she is alone as she embodies every character throughout the play. Bunny had me smiling from ear to ear but then tugged at my heart at the perfect moments. Great for kids and adults alike :)

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. I love how this story shows that, in the end, there’s always a way to make your creativity serve you and the world around you. Even though Christmas is the backdrop for the story, it’s a universal theme that works year-round.

Ever ready and festively dressed (try not to covet those shoes,) Bunny embarks to work for “one of the best humans ever!”– a dream come true. Endlessly sparkling and positive, she's loaded with anecdotes on the joys (and perils) of spreading holiday cheer, motivating in “Elf” meetings (“Elfin' Rocks!”), encouraging (and corraling) customers, and generally elfing around...In lieu of Bunny's failures, her untainted charm, innocence, honesty, sincere love of people and genuine desire to be of help, succeed. Highlights are drunk Bunny at the store's Holiday party and an ultimate reveal that tucked away for Bunny is a real “gift."

Pedigo transforms into Bunny with such gusto, from the elf ears to the cotton candy scented perfume, while wearing the elf costume she absolutely embodies the character filled and infectious joy and excitement. You will walk away with a smile on your face an inspired to inspire others.

Bunny, The Elf is in all of us. The dreams we dared to dream as children get reasoned out of us as reality and responsibility 'grows us up'. The criticism of 'get a real job' that most artists/entertainers hear often is all too relate-able. As if making people smile wasn't a real job. What a gift it is to make a living as an entertainer. Getting paid to make people smile-IS AN IMPORTANT JOB. This is why it's always a huge accomplishment when an artists gets a gig lasting longer than a day or a week. Bunny got to be Bunny for a whole season. She IS a talented actress, singer, and professional creator of smiles. What wonderful poetic justice to watch Bunny's evolution through her show to the 'A-HA!' end. You gotta watch it to find out!
