Elf: The Musical

Book by Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin.
Music by Matthew Sklar. Lyrics by Chad Beguelin.

Based on the New Line Cinema film written by David Berenbaum.
Originally produced by Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures
In association with Unique Features
Elf The Musical is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com.

Buddy the Elf has always been a little different. Even among his professionally festive Christmas coworkers Buddy really stands...TALL! But when Buddy learns from Santa that he’s a human, the enormous former elf embarks on a quest to the sparkling city of New York during the holidays to find his father. His unusually upbeat, childlike cheer has a powerful effect on everyone he encounters—with sometimes disastrous results! But will Buddy be able to charm his stressed-out dad who long ago lost his seasonal spirit and wants nothing to do with a son he didn’t know he had? This fun-filled musical adaptation of the favorite holiday film that became an instant classic is a stuffed stocking full of song and dance that your family will most definitely want on your Christmas Wish List!

Meet the Cast & Get an Autograph!

Some performers will be available after the show to say hello, pose in pictures, and sign their autographs for you. You can meet them on the mezzanine level right outside the entrance to our balcony level seats.

Accessibility

Social Stories

A social story is a tool that helps individuals better understand the world around them so they can plan for a positive experience, even if they are going into an place that is unknown to them. Social stories help individuals know what to expect and what to do in unfamiliar situations by walking them through the experience. They are often used by individuals on the autism spectrum, children with sensory needs or those with other special needs. They can be very helpful for very young children anticipating their first theatrical experience. The Rose’s social stories feature photos of all areas of the theater to help children of all abilities with a step-by-step explanation of what it is like to visit The Rose, as well as answering questions they may have. Click here to access The Rose’s show-specific social stories.
