Elf the Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner Elf.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Elf Like?
While a few changes have been made, Elf is very faithful to the popular 2003 film the show is based on. Audiences will recognize many of the film’s jokes with several new ones added. The brassy score features Christmas carol-tinged songs and the story takes place on a brightly colored stage where Santa’s workshop and the New York City skyline come to life. There are many big dance numbers featuring the show’s 25-member cast with humor prevalent throughout.

Is Elf Good for Kids?
 Elf is perfect for children. Kids will love Buddy’s smiley personality and be wowed by the show’s visual magic (including Santa’s flying sleigh). There’s some very minor sexual innuendo, but that will likely fly high above your happily entertained children’s heads.
