This holiday season see a modern Christmas movie favourite come to life on stage with Elf the Musical! Book an evening at Festival Place and enjoy all the humorous antics of Buddy the Elf as he haphazardly tries to figure out where he fits in in the world.

Buddy’s story begins with him as very young orphan who has mistakenly crawled into Santa’s gift bag and been transported to the North Pole. Here he has been raised as a joyous Elf, completely unaware until his enormous size and shoddy toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth that he may actually be human. It will be a laugh-out-loud evening as the Festival Players bring you along on Buddy’s journey to New York where he tries to fit into our world and discover his true identity. It is not all fun and games for Buddy, though, as he soon discovers that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa! With grit, determination and a little help from a colorful cast of characters, will Buddy be able to help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas? You’ll have to see it to find out!

This modern-day classic will have the whole family embracing their inner elf. A proud Sherwood Park tradition, this marks the 18th season of outstanding Holiday shows at Festival Place. Past audience favourites include everything from Mary Poppins and Anne of Green Gables, to Fiddler on the Roof and Oklahoma. With the Festival Players cast of 30 and a pit orchestra of 15, Elf the Musical guarantees to get your toes tapping and your lips singing – after all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear!
