Buddy The Elf Will Return to New York City Next Holiday Season; Elf The Musical Returns to MSG

ELF The Musical at The Theater at Madison Square Garden. Back by popular demand, this limited holiday engagement begins Wednesday, December 13 and will run through Friday, December 29, 2017. Tickets are available to the general public on Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at 10:00AM.

ELF The Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy's 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, discover his true identity, and help New York remember their inner ELF.

Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit, ELF The Musical features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer) and Chad Beguelin (Disney's Aladdin, The Wedding Singer) with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone). The production will feature direction by Sam Scalamoni and choreography by Connor Gallagher. Casting by Stewart/Whitley.

Casting will be announced at a later date.
