“Elf, the Musical”, Fireside Dinner Theatre,
Ft. Atkinson, Wisconsin
Thursday, November 15
Trip Code: PVV74503-14

Based on the beloved holiday film,
this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy is
now a must-see holiday musical. Buddy,
a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into
Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported
to the North Pole. The would-be elf
is raised, unaware that he is actually a
human, until his 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 and discover his true
identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the
naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa,
Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New
York remember the true spirit of Christmas. This modern day
holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner
elf! A special sit-down gourmet lunch is included in the fee.
