Onstage: Elf the Musical

You have until Sunday to discover your inner elf.

You have until Sunday to discover your inner elf. Based on Will Ferrell’s hilarious 2003 movie, this touring Broadway musical tells the story of Buddy, an orphan mistakenly transported to the North Pole and put to work in Santa’s toy shop. He’s too human to pass for an elf and too clumsy to succeed at making toys. So he strikes out on a trek to New York City to find his real father. His quest leads him to the true meaning of Christmas. It’s a sweet kickoff for the holidays, one for families to enjoy together. 

Through Dec. 7. $29-$107. Aronoff Center, 650 Walnut St., Downtown, 513-621-2787, cincinnatiarts.org.
