Music by Matthew Sklar
Lyrics by Chad BeguelinBased upon the New Line Cinema film written by David Berenbaum
Based on the beloved holiday film, this musical comedy follows Buddy the Elf in his journey from the North Pole to New York City to find his true identity.
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 reality that his father is on the naughty list and that 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.
