‘ELF The Musical’ brings holiday spirit

For Immediate Release:  Oct. 28, 2016

BLOOMSBURG — The holidays are coming early to Bloomsburg University’s Celebrity Artist Series with the national Broadway tour of “ELF The Musical” on Friday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in Haas Center for Performing Arts, Mitrani Hall.

“ELF The Musical,” adapted from the 2003 film, is the tale of Buddy, an orphan who accidently crawls into Santa’s bag and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. Buddy then embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, his true identity and help all of New York City remember the true meaning of Christmas.

“ELF The Musical” features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Skalr and Chad Beguelin (“The Wedding Singer”) with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (“Annie,” “The Producers” and “Hairspray”) and Bob Martin (“The Drowsy Chaperone”).

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
