Travel through the one-way street forest, pass the twirly-swirly snowfalls, and walk into the Erie Playhouse for Elf : The Musical by Alex Bieler
Erie Playhouse

It was 11 years ago when audiences first saw an unusually tall elf named Buddy travel through the seven levels of the candy cane forest, pass the sea of twirly-swirly gumdrops, and walk through the Lincoln Tunnel. Now the beloved Christmas story of  Elf: The Musical will grace the Erie Playhouse stage for a month-long run this holiday season.

The magical mainstage musical follows Buddy, a human who was mistakenly taken to the North Pole as a baby, and his journey to find his dad in New York City, where the locals aren’t quite as friendly as the sugar- and happiness-loving elves. Not one to be easily dismayed by relatives on the “naughty list” and department store Santas who smell of beef and cheese, Buddy persists on an adventure that will make for plenty of laughs and have you thinking of the true meaning of Christmas.

Led by a cast that includes Michael Hipwell as the lovable Buddy, Elf: The Musical grants you 16 chances to travel through the one-way street forest, pass the twirly-swirly snowfalls, and walk into the Erie Playhouse theater to embrace your inner elf. 

7:30 p.m. Dec. 5, 6, 11-13, 17-20, and Jan. 2, and 2 p.m. Dec. 14, 21, 27, 28, and Jan. 3 and 4  // 13 W. 10th St. // erieplayhouse.org
