Generously sponsored by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, NETworks Presentations, LLC, Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures and Unique Features bring ELF: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL to The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts in Worcester for five performances November 21-23, 2014.

Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit, ELF: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin ("The Wedding Singer"), with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan ("Annie," "The Producers," "Hairspray") and Bob Martin ("The Drowsy Chaperone").

ELF: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s 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, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf.
