Inspired by the 2003 film starring Will Ferrell, Elf features a score by Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin. The musical tells the story of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy's 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, discover his true identity, and help New York remember their inner Elf.
