‘Elf’ the Broadway musical arrives in Huntington Monday

Elf“Elf” the Broadway musical, the engaging story of  Buddy, a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole, makes it way to the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 17.

Initially 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.

The New York Times says  “ELF,” which is based on the 2003 movie, is “a splashy, peppy, sugar-sprinkled holiday entertainment!”  and Variety wrote  “’Elf’ is happy enough for families, savvy enough for city kids and plenty smart for adults!”

Additional information about “Elf’ is available at www.ElfTheMusicalOnTour.com.
