Tickets on sale for ‘Elf the Musical’

OUR TOWN TEMPLE

Tickets for Elf the Musical, the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole, are now on sale HERE.

The Temple Civic Theatre production is directed by Natasha Tolleson and stars Clyde Ciupek as Buddy and Carlen Gilseth as Santa Claus.

Buddy 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, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity.

Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and his stepbrother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
