Elf is a holiday production that brings the story of Buddy the Elf to the stage. It follows Buddy, a human who was accidentally raised by Santa’s elves at the North Pole, as he embarks on a whimsical adventure to New York City in search of his real father. In the bustling city, Buddy’s childlike innocence and boundless Christmas spirit bring laughter and holiday cheer to everyone he encounters. As Buddy reconnects with his estranged father, Walter Hobbs, he also helps rekindle the spirit of Christmas in the hearts of jaded New Yorkers. Elf is a festive celebration of family, love, and the belief in the magic of Christmas.
