Celebrate the season at Houston’s biggest holiday event, Elf – The Musical from Theatre Under The Stars! Based on the cherished 2003 movie, the Broadway hit comes to the Hobby Center just in time for Christmas.

Elf tells the story of Buddy, a human accidentally transported to the North Pole as a baby. Unaware of his heritage, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth of his past. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help the Big Apple remember the true meaning of Christmas. Gather your family and friends to share in this magical holiday event, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Recommended Ages: Elf – The Musical is a full-length Broadway musical intended for ages 8+ and is not recommended for anyone under the age of 4. Everyone, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
