- Siggi Ragnar
Based on the 2003 Will Ferrell film, the musical follows Buddy the Elf, played by James Welch, who goes on a quest into the world of humans to figure out his true identity and lineage. Along the way, he encounters obstacles including corporate New York City, an angry father and his faltering belief in the magic of Santa Claus.
Paired with festive songs, Buddy’s antics bring an engaging sense of holly-jolliness and a welcome change from the usual holiday stage fare.
