Special Offer: ELF at Drury Lane Theatre

Special Offer: Don’t be a cotton-headed-ninny-muggins!

This November discover the magic of Christmas with the help of an Ellf unlike any-Buddy else. Drury Lane Theatre will continue its 2022/2023 season with the holiday classic Elf-the Musical, based upon the New Line Cinema film written by David Berenbaum. Book by Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin, music by Matthew Skylar, lyrics by Chad Beguelin. Directed by Lynne Kurdziel-Formato. Elf-the Musical runs November 9, 2022 - January 8, 2023, at Drury Lane Theatre, 100 Drury Lane in Oakbrook Terrace.

After discovering he is really a human raised as an elf, Buddy makes the journey from the North Pole to New York City to find his birth father, sharing the true meaning of Christmas along the way. Based on the hit holiday film, Elf-the Musical brings heart, hilarity, and holiday joy-after all, "the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!"
