Elf the Musical National Youth Theater

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 the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner ELF.

The talented cast, comprised of ages 8-19, presents the show Dec. 16-18, at Nancy Bock Center for the Performing Arts located at 3800 S. Panther Creek Drive in The Woodlands.
