“Elf the Musical” is a modern-day classic of screen and stage. A colorful heartwarming comedy that features non-stop action, memorable tunes, and child-like wisdom, “Elf the Musical” tells the story of Buddy, an orphaned boy who crawls into Santa’s sleigh-bag and is accidentally transported back to the North Pole. When the cheerful elf community sees the toddler emerge, they name him Buddy, after the brand name on his diaper. A kindly bachelor-elf adopts the new arrival.
Although he is human, Buddy is raised by elves. He is unaware that he is actually a human, but eventually his enormous size and lack of toy-making talent leads him to ask questions. When his kind elf-dad tells the story of the adoption, Buddy’s journey to New York City begins. In search of his birth father, Buddy encounters many challenges; but his kind spirit is undaunted.
The true meaning of the season is revealed through the love, family, and friendship Buddy earns as he navigates a new world he has adopted – even if just for a time.
