Information

Show Credits: Book by Bob Martin and Thomas Meehan
Music by Matthew Sklar
Lyrics by Chad Beguelin

Description: A title known the world over, ELF is a Christmastime must-produce that can easily become an annual tradition for any theatre. Based on the cherished 2003 New Line Cinema hit, ELF features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (THE WEDDING SINGER), with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (ANNIE, THE PRODUCERS, HAIRSPRAY) and Bob Martin (THE DROWSY CHAPERONE).
Buddy, a young orphan mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is aised unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and his step-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

While a few changes have been made, ELF is very faithful to the popular film the show is based on. Audiences will recognize many of the film's jokes with several new ones added. This modern day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf. After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
