Broadway musical 'Elf' comes to Opera House

 Broadway In Detroit in association with NETworks Presentations, LLC, Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures and Unique Features, bring the Broadway musical “Elf” to the Detroit Opera House, Dec. 3-15. Tickets will go on sale Sunday, Sept.29 at noon at all Ticketmaster locations, by phone at 1-800-982-2787, online at www.ticketmaster.com, and at the Fisher Theatre box office. Tickets will be available at the Detroit Opera House box office starting at 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 30. 


Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit, “Elf” features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (”The Wedding Singer”), with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (”Annie,” “The Producers,” “Hairspray”) and Bob Martin (”The Drowsy Chaperone”). The production will feature direction by Sam Scalamoni and choreography by Connor Gallagher. 

Casting will be announced at a later date.

“Elf” is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human and not an elf, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner “Elf.”
