ELF is a heart-warming holiday musical, Santa narrates the story of Buddy, an apparently oversized elf who has been raised in the North Pole. During the lead up to Christmas, Buddy overhears the other elves discussing how he is really a human, a fact that has been concealed from him his whole life. He is devastated and Santa must reveal to this wannabe elf that baby Buddy mistakenly crawled into Santa’s bag of gifts on Christmas Eve many years ago and was transported to the North Pole on Santa’s return home. With Santa’s blessing, Buddy decides to travel to New York City to find his real father (who is on the naughty list). Shocked, he is further astounded that his half-brother doesn’t believe in Santa. How can this be? Buddy decides to change the outlook and behavior of his new family and bring the true meaning of Christmas back into New York City. Along the way, he discovers friendship, romance, and his true identity. Elf is a modern day holiday classic that aims to spread Christmas cheer for all to hear!
