Just in time for the holiday season, “Elf: The Musical” is opening soon downtown.
Grand Rapids Civic Theatre will perform the musical that’s based on the 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell.
The show follows the orphan Buddy, who accidentally crawls into Santa’s bag and is transported to the North Pole.
“With no understanding of his origin story, Buddy lives a blissfully unaware life among his family of elves,” the theater says.
“This all comes to an end when his disastrous toy-making efforts force the admission that he is a human. With a little encouragement from Santa, Buddy heads to New York City on a quest to find his birth father and discover his true identity.”
The show will be performed multiple times between Nov. 22 and Dec. 22.
Tickets are $22-$39.
