A comedic confection that will make you want to spread Christmas cheer by singing loud for all to hear.

When Buddy, a stowaway orphan turned would-be elf, realizes he’s a larger-than-average human, a journey unfolds to find his birth father and true identity. Although New York City and his family unveil some harsh realities, Buddy’s heartfelt determination proves to everyone the real meaning of Christmas. Based on the beloved 2003 film, and coming back to The Phoenix Theatre Company for a second time, this musical adaptation is a sugary treat the whole family will enjoy during the holiday season.
