The best way to spread Christmas cheer is, well, a day with Buddy the Elf

Buddy the Elf is getting ready to spread Christmas cheer close to home.

La Comedia Dinner Theatre’s version of “Elf the Musical” will begin this week. The stage show is based on the beloved 2003 holiday film starring Will Ferrell.

Buddy, a young orphan, crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole and is raised by elves. Buddy, once he discovers he is not like the other elves, goes on a journey to New York to discover his true identity and help his new family learn the true meaning of Christmas.

The show will run from Nov. 7 through Dec. 31 and tickets include a buffet meal.
