In this family-friendly musical comedy, Buddy, a human who was raised as an elf at the North Pole, embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help the town remember the true meaning of Christmas. This year's production of 'Elf the Musical,' features George Wendt, from the long-running television series 'Cheers,' returning to star as Santa Claus, the role he originated in the Broadway production in 2010.
