What Is Elf The Musical Like?
New York City is the perfect place to see Elf the Musical, as the story involves a young orphan child named Buddy Hobbs who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of presents and ends up at the North Pole. After living there for years, Buddy realizes that he is not an elf after all, but a normal person, and he decides to embark on a trip to New York City to find his real father. When he gets there, he is saddened to find that his father does not truly believe in the spirit of Christmas, like many New Yorkers. However, Santa’s sleigh is powered by people’s beliefs, and thus this is a serious problem. Buddy is therefore tasked with convincing his family and New York City as a whole that the spirit of Christmas is well and alive. This show is sure to be a delightful Christmas treat, taking place in the heart of the story of Elf: New York City. Is Elf The Musical Good for Kids?
Yes, Elf is a wonderful show for the whole family. Children who have already had their second birthday are required to purchase a ticket.
