Elf has quickly become a modern Christmas classic. Based on the 2003 film, Elf – The Musical tells the story of Buddy, a human raised as an elf at the North Pole. Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making skills soon make him realize he’s not fit to live at the North Pole. He travels to New York City where he learns his dad doesn’t believe in Santa Claus! With song and a little magic, Buddy makes it a sparklejollytwinklejingly Christmas. Elf – The Musical is sponsored by Corteva Agriscience. Performances are Nov. 30-Dec. 23, 2018, at 7:00 PM on Fridays and 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are available at dmplayhouse.com and by calling 515-277-6261.

The Playhouse, now in its 100th season, is one of the oldest and largest community theatres in the U.S. Located at the 42nd Street exit of I-235, the theatre has presented a full season of shows since 1919 and also offers a wide variety of educational experiences including classes for ages 4 to adult, theatre trips to New York, and volunteer opportunities onstage and backstage.
