Elf the Musical

Elf the Musical

The letters "e L f" in green with the "L" resembling a stocking over the text "The Musical".

Where on earth does Buddy belong? Raised by elves, his spirit is sweeter than syrup. But his toymaking is … very human. Buddy slides into an icy quest to find his biological father. Sure, he might struggle to fit in. But in this musical based on the 2003 hit holiday film, misfits are the largest family of all.
