Orlando REP Brings the North Pole to Loch Haven Park with ELF – The Musical


ORLANDO REPERTORY THEATRE (Orlando REP) is proud to present ELF – The Musical, based on the New Line Cinema film from November 12 – December 30. This production is proudly presented by Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.


Buddy the Elf, the lovable character from the New Line Cinema film written by David Berenbaum, comes to life onstage in a musical adaptation of his journey from the North Pole to the Big Apple. Adopted and raised by Santa’s elves, Buddy grows up to discover that he is actually a human man, explaining the peculiarity of his towering height and complete lack of toy-making ability. Venturing out to find his real father, Buddy must face the harsh reality of Manhattan – where some people don’t even believe Santa exists. This family-friendly production is sure to ignite your holiday spark and get you in the mood for cocoa, carols, and good cheer. And of course, Buddy’s favorite food: syrup!

ELF – The Musical’s magical production team includes co-direction and musical direction by Steve Mackinnon, co-direction and choreography by Spencer Morrow, scenic design by Cindy White, costume design by Wes Jenkins, prop design by Tara Kromer, lighting by Alyx Jacobs, and sound by Anthony Narciso.
