Elf is the funny and charming tale of Buddy, who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts as ababy and is transported back to the North Pole — and raised as an elf! Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities finally cause him to face the truth andrealise he’ll never belong in the North Pole. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York to find his birth father, discover his true identity and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

The musical is based on the 2003 New Line Cinema film, with Will Ferrell playing Buddy, it features a book by Tony Award-winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), with songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer).
