Based on the beloved 2003 movie, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy is a must-see holiday musical packed with family fun!

ELF: The Musical is the comic tale of Buddy, whose enormous size and poor toy-making abilities make him wonder if he is actually an elf. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his dear old dad is on the naughty list, and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help the Big Apple remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Brimming with joyful optimism and holiday spirit, this modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf.
