The festive fun starts as soon as you enter the lobby of Aurora’s Paramount Theatre, where you’ll be greeted by a two-story Christmas tree and thousands of twinkling lights. Then fasten your sleigh belts for a fun ride that follows the story of Buddy, a little boy who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. He grows up unaware that he’s an actual human, but his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities eventually force him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy then takes off on a journey to New York to find his birth father, discover his true identity and help the city remember the true meaning of Christmas — and this sparkling holiday show Elf the Musical will no doubt do the same for you and yours.
