Buddy the elf, what’s your favorite color?

Based on the 2003 Christmas classic, Elf: The Musical is set to perform at Belmar Elementary School in Belmar.

The musical tells the story of Buddy, a human raised as an elf in Santa’s workshop, as he travels from the North Pole to New York City to meet his birth father.

The performances, put on by the Artist Collective Troupe, will be Dec. 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. and with matinees Dec. 10 and 11 at 2 p.m.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to the start time. Before the show begins, the Artist Collective Troupe’s caroling group, the Collective Carolers, will sing for the audience.

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”

For any fans of the show who are hard of hearing, the Dec. 10 matinee will offer an American Sign Language interpretation. Certain seats will be designated to those who need a better view of the interpreter.

Tickets can be purchased here. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Ashley Lauren Foundation: Hope & Help for Children with Cancer.

Belmar Elementary School is located at 1101 Main Street in Belmar, NJ.
