ELF the MUSICAL
DIRECTED BY MELANIE GORDON

A title known the world over, Elf the Musical is a holiday must-see! 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 and discover his true identity. Discovering that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. Embrace your inner elf! After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear.

TICKETS WILL BE ON SALE IN OCTOBER

We have a NO REFUND POLICY. No refunds will be granted after the purchase of tickets (unless cancelled by Habersham Community Theater).

Please arrive early. The theater is open one hour before showtime, and the house opens 30 minutes before showtime. Our shows are usually sold out with a waiting list, so if you have not checked in with the box office 15 minutes before the curtain opens, we may give your seat to someone on the waiting list. If tardiness is unavoidable, please call the box office at (706) 839-1315 so that we can ensure that your seat is reserved for you. If you find you are unable to use your ticket, please let us know in advance so that we can seat other patrons. Out of respect for the other patrons and the actors onstage, patrons arriving late (after the show has started) will be seated during the next scene change.
