Elf the Musical
Young orphan Buddy accidentally gets into Santa’s bag of presents and is taken to the North Pole. The would-be elf is reared without ever realizing that he is a human until his gigantic stature and terrible ability to make toys force him to do so. Buddy travels to New York City with Santa’s approval in order to track down his birth father and learn who he really is.
Everyone will embrace their inner elf after watching this contemporary holiday classic. After all, singing loudly for everyone to hear is the best way to spread holiday cheer. Watch and witness Buddy’s journey at the Neptune Theatre – Fountain Hall Stage that features Ryan Brown as Buddy and Amanda Lundgren as Jovie!
This is a 4-week-long, outdoor winter festival of Nova Scotian tradition, cuisine, libations, handicrafts, artwork, and memorable encounters. Holiday light displays and festive programming will be available in the Halifax region at local shops, eateries, hotels, attractions, and public places.
Join the festivities in various host locations such as the The Halifax waterfront, downtown Halifax, the Spring Garden Area, and downtown Dartmouth until December 18!
