Why Watch Elf the musical
Apart from a few tweaks, Elf remains true to the popular storyline that we’ve watched in its namesake film. The brassy score features Christmas carol-themed songs that you can enjoy along with a brightly lit up festive backdrop. The stunning visuals bring Santa’s workshop and New York City skyline to life. Sit back and take in the spirit of Christmas as Elf treats you with a grand, 25 member dance number and a tinge of humor.
Elf is a hilarious tale of a young orphaned child named Buddy, who mistakenly climbs into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported straight to the North Pole. Taken in by an old elf who finds him, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making ability eventually reveals his identity as a human. With Santa’s permission, Buddy then embarks on a journey to New York City to look for his birth father, discover his true identity and help New York City discover the true meaning of Christmas.This modern day classic is sure to bring a smile to your face.
