Book by Thomas Meehan & Bob Martin, Music by Matthew Sklar, Lyrics by Chad Begueli Based on the New Line Cinema film written by David Berenbaum.
A title known the world over, Elf The Musical JR. is based on the cherished New Line Cinema hit about Buddy, a young orphan mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised unaware that he is actually a human, until his 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 the true meaning of Christmas.
