The stage adaptation of the Will Ferrell holiday classic will be performed by the Department of Music and Theatre.
The Department of Music and Theatre is preparing a holiday treat at Cal U for fans of Elf.
For the first time, a license to perform the stage version — Elf The Musical — is available to educational and amateur theaters, and Cal U has secured the production for 2019 and 2020.
Elf The Musical, based on the 2003 motion picture starring Will Ferrell, will be performed at 7 p.m. Nov. 21-23, with matinees at 2 p.m. Nov. 23-24.
The show, which sees community members joining Cal U students onstage and behind the scenes, is open to the public and will be performed in the Mainstage Theatre of Steele Hall.
This modern holiday classic is a hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy that follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity.
Ticket price is $12 for adults; $6 for those 60 and older and 12 and younger. Cal U students with valid CalCards pay a $5 deposit that is refunded at the show.
For ticket information, or to charge tickets by phone, call the Steele Hall Box Office at 724-938-5943.
