Based on the beloved holiday film, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy featuring a talented youth cast follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity.

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, he heads to New York City to find his birth father, Walter. Buddy discovers his father, half-brother, and many other New Yorkers don’t believe in the spirit of Christmas. This is a problem because people’s belief powers Santa’s sleigh! Buddy is determined to win over his family and help New York City remember the true meaning of Christmas.

This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf. After all, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
