This family musical brings the 2003 movie to a new level with cheerful, Christmas-infused songs. Buddy always believed he was like every other elf in Santa’s workshop, despite his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities. When Buddy discovers he is actually a human, he decides to make a change. As he travels to New York City in search of his long-lost dad and his true identity, Buddy will discover many new things and save Christmas in the process.


Enter through front doors of theatre. There will be singing, reading and dancing, be prepared to stay for a decent amount of time (possibly the whole time), and be sure to dress comfortably with close toed shoes.
