Adapted from the popular 2003 "Elf" movie, "Elf The Musical" is directed by Kenney Workman of Milford. Georgetown resident Diane Trautman is music director and Bliss Soucek of Milford is choreographer.
On stage in Possum Hall, the story introduces Buddy, a young orphan who mistakenly crawled into Santa's bag of gifts and was transported to the North Pole one Christmas Eve. The foundling youngster is lovingly raised as an elf, and no one is aware that he is actually a human until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities give him away.
With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. He discovers the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa. Raised with positive thinking and good cheer, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
