Elf tells the heartwarming and hilarious story of Buddy, a human who, as a baby, mistakenly finds himself in Santa’s bag of gifts and is whisked away to the North Pole. Raised as an elf, Buddy eventually realizes his human origins due to his size and less-than-stellar toy-making skills. With a blessing from Santa, he sets off to New York City in search of his birth father, embarking on a journey of self-discovery and spreading Christmas cheer.

The musical, which brings to life the beloved holiday film, will captivate audiences with its blend of humour, warmth, and the magic of Christmas.
