Dallas Christmas Family Fun: Elf the Musical

Like Buddy says,”The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.” SO HERE I AM! Screaming and singing IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME!

So yes, I am one of those people who decorates early and cannot wait for Christmas to come around. This year, one of the highlights of the season is sure to be my favorite Christmas movie turned into a musical – ELF! That’s right Dallas,  ELF is here this year at the Dallas Summer Musicals and it’s a Christmas family fun event you won’t want to miss.

ELF the Musical

ELF The Musical is at the Music Hall at Fair Park from November 27 – December 2, 2018. That’s it! Just a week run because you know, Buddy has elf things to do, but so glad he is coming to Dallas.

The hubs and I are making it a date on opening night. Make sure to join in on social and post about the show (just not during the show) using #ElfDSM. 

Intermission Cheese Tray and Wine

This is my favorite tip for anyone headed to see a Dallas musical at Fair Park. Make sure to arrive to the show around half an hour early.

You want to get comfy in your seat, get your social posts posted AND you want to pre-order your cheese tray and wine for intermission. That’s right. WINE. CHEESE TRAY. INTERMISSION.

Before you walk into the theatre, you will see a table. Tell the lady that you need wine and a cheese tray during the intermission of Elf and she will ring you up and make sure that you are taken care of.

Now here is the beautiful part. Since you pre-ordered, you just go to the table area (it’s just opposite of the theater) and tell them your name. They have your wine and cheese tray WAITING for you.

You have already pre-paid so when you are done, just return to your seats. It’s as easy as that. You will thank me later. 

About the Show

ELF is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s 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, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner ELF.

The New York Times says that ELF is “A SPLASHY, PEPPY, SUGAR-SPRINKLED HOLIDAY ENTERTAINMENT!” USA Today calls ELF“ ENDEARINGLY GOOFY!” Variety proclaims, “ELF is happy enough for families, savvy enough for city kids and plenty smart for adults!”
