A perfect holiday feel-good show, Elf will turn even the grumpiest of grinches into a happy-go-lucky bearer of Christmas cheer, singing loud for all to hear.

Book by Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin. Music by Matthew Sklar. Lyrics by Chad Beguelin. Based upon the New Line Cinema film written by David Berenbaum. Originally produced by Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures in association with Unique Features

If you’ve ever felt like you don’t belong, just be glad you’re not William “Buddy” Hobbes.

When he was only a baby, Buddy crawled into Santa’s sack of presents and was whisked away to the North Pole where he lived as an elf for years. Buddy grew up thinking he was just like all the others. He took joy in doing elf things, like making toys. But there was always something off about him. He towers over his fellow elves and just doesn’t get cobbling. Buddy soon realizes the truth about being … gulp … human and goes in search of his father, a workaholic publisher. Imagine Buddy’s horror when he finds out his dad does not share his love for Christmas. In fact, he couldn’t care less about it. But this is the infectiously-cheerful wannabe elf who grew up with jolly old St. Nick, and a little problem like that won’t deter Buddy from changing people’s hearts and minds.

Based on the hilarious 2003 Will Ferrell movie, Elf is one of those rare holiday shows that will have both kids and adults lighting up with laughter, humming tunes like “A Christmas Song” and “Sparklejollytwinklejingley” for days and rediscovering what it means to be a family. And Paramount has become the place that families head to for memorable holiday experiences. From the two-story Christmas tree in the lobby, to the thousands of sparkling lights adorning the banisters, to the carolers filling the air with song, you can’t help but get into the spirit the minute you walk through the doors. So this holiday season, join the Paramount family for the perfect feel-good show that will turn even the grumpiest of grinches into a happy-go-lucky bearer of Christmas cheer, singing loud for all to hear.
