ELF The Broadway Musical brings its sparklejollytwinklejingley cheer to Dallas!

Posted on December 15th, 2015

Dallas Summer Musicals fills the Musical Hall with a warm festive glow as it kicks off the holiday season with the splashy, peppy, sugar-sprinkled holiday entertainment production of ELF The Musical at the Music Hall at Fair Park December 8-20, 2015. Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit, ELF is the hilarious tale of Buddy a young orphan who is raised by elves unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy making abilities cause him to face the truth. Through a journey to New York City to find his father and true identity, Buddy is determined to win over his family and help the Big Apple remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make even the biggest Cotton-Headed-Ninny-Muggin embrace their inner ELF.
