The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear! In this heartwarming adventure, based on the New Line Cinema film, Buddy realizes he is a human living among elves and decides he has been in the North Pole long enough. Join him this Christmas season on his journey to find home, and discover what family really means!

Age Recommended: Most enjoyed by children 6 and up.

Approximate Run Time:

Act 1: 45 minutes

10-minute intermission

Act 2: 30 minutes



  • Gentle insults and name calling are used (“Cotton-Headed-Ninny-Muggins”).

  • Use of sarcasm and subtle judgement (“Dorky”)

  • Ingenuine threats of violence (“No, would somebody like a punch in the throat?” and “How’d you like to be dead?”)


Themes and Situations:

  • Buddy refers to himself as an orphan because he was separated from his parents. 

  • Walter chooses to focus on his work rather than spend time with his family. His wife and son (Emily and Michael) express that they wish he would be around more often. 

  • It is suggested that Buddy’s mother, Susan, has passed away. 


Potential Scary Moments:

  • It is revealed that the mall Santa’s are not really Santa.

  • Michael, Emily, and Walter openly announce that they believe Santa is fake. It is revealed at the end that he is real, and they all begin to believe in Santa Claus.

  • Buddy is told to leave by his father, and Buddy runs away. 

  • There is a story about a one-legged boy who receives a leg for Christmas. 


Other Cautions/Advisories:

  • Christmas Town is compared to Heaven.

  • Staged combat between Buddy and fake Santa.

  • Magic is used when Santa’s sleigh begins to fly.
