The Hilarious Modern Holiday Classic
If the thought of oversized manchild Will Ferrel squeezed into bright yellow tights immediately fills you with Christmas cheer, then TUTS' holiday production of Elf The Musical is sure to put a festive spring in your step! Based on the ever popular 2003 comedy film Elf, which has become a modern holiday classic in its own right, the stage adaptation first warmed the cockles during 2010 and 2012, winning over audiences with high spirited song and dance numbers, zany onstage gags and a few adult-aimed jokes for good measure.
Elf follows the fantastical story of Buddy, a young orphan who somehow manages to crawl into Santa's sack of presents and is accidentally whisked away to the North Pole. With seemingly no family to return to, Buddy is raised by Santa and his helpers as an elf, which proves problematic when he grows up and is distinctly different to the pint-sized toymakers. When Buddy learns the truth, he undertakes a hijink-filled journey to New York City in search of his birth parents.
