Don't Miss

Last chance to see Elf

Closes December 27th

Elf: The Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who accidentally crawls into Santa's sack of gifts and is taken to the North Pole. Buddy is raised unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. The heartwarming musical follows Buddy on a task of impossible size - can he reunite his new family in happiness, as well as bring much-needed Christmas spirit to the city of New York?
