“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” Nashville Rep presents Elf The Musical, based on the movie that became an instant holiday classic. Buddy has lived at the North Pole for his entire life, but his enormous size and inability to make toys eventually bring about a harsh reality: Buddy is an orphan human who came to the North Pole by mistake. When he finds out that he is adopted, Buddy gets permission from Santa to go to New York and find his birth father. Once he travels through the seven levels of the Candy Cane Forest, the Sea of Swirly Twirly Gumdrops and the Lincoln Tunnel, Buddy discovers that things are worse than he could have imagined. His father is on the naughty list, his younger half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa Claus, and it’s on Buddy to save the Christmas Spirit. Bring the whole family for a night of hilarious holiday cheer and see if Buddy can make everything “Sparklejollytwinklejingly” in New York again!
