About ELF the Musical
On a busy day in Santa’s workshop, the elves discover a Christmas miracle - an orphaned baby who has mistakenly crawled into Santa's rucksack and has travelled all the way to the North Pole. Welcomed into the elf community with open arms, Buddy is unknowingly raised to be one of Santa’s little helpers. He is blissfully unaware of his human traits until soon enough he begins to notice some peculiar things, he is much taller than his little friends, and not as good at making toys. Aware that he may never truly belong at the North Pole, with Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a life-changing journey to New York to discover his true identity.
The creatives behind ELF the Musical
ELF features a book by Tony Award-winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone) with explosive songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer) and direction by Philip Wm. McKinley.

I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
