Take a hilarious hit movie, add in some seriously impressive song-and-dance numbers, tie a big Broadway bow around it and you've got the sweet family treat known as Elf the Musical. Fasten your sleigh belts for a fun ride that follows the story of Buddy, a little boy who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. He grows up unaware that he's an actual human, but his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities eventually force him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy takes off on a journey to New York to find his birth father, discover his true identity and help the city remember the true meaning of Christmas. Enjoy this sparkling holiday show at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach. This show is considered PG.
