"Elf The Musical" is playing at the Fox Theatre through November 30th. Watch the video player for JoAnn Purtan's interview with a star as seen on 7 Action News at Noon.

The hit Broadway show is  the funny tale of Buddy  a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole.

Buddy has no idea he's human, and 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, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner ELF.
