It’s the excitement of dressing up (or not!) and going out for a special event. It’s sitting in a darkened theatre and the anticipation of what’s to come, with music and lights and visual enchantment. Going to live theatre is an experience that can’t be replicated and a chance to share the experience with your kids is always a pleasure with the excellent shows at Calgary’s StoryBook Theatre.

StoryBook Theatre is the largest volunteer-driven Theatre for Young Audiences in Canada. They have been delighting children of all ages for almost 45 years with their charming performances and talented pool of local actors. Every season they bring together incredible talent, both on and off the stage, to present theatre productions that are suitable for the whole family. Stories brought to life can entertain, inspire, and connect us, as children explore different perspectives and dream about who they are. StoryBook Theatre plays at the Beddington Theatre Arts Centre.

The 2022-23 season at StoryBook Theatre is filled with excellent shows that the whole family will appreciate. This Christmas, from November 25 – December 31, 2022, Elf: The Musical is coming to Storybook Theatre and you could win four tickets for your family to enjoy this modern-day holiday classic! Scroll to the bottom to enter.

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human until his 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 and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Embrace your inner elf, and spread that Christmas cheer by singing out loud for all to hear!

Looking ahead? Check out more upcoming shows for the 2022-23 season:
