The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

Come get cozy next to the fire with CYT and kick off your holiday season with the story of Buddy the Elf! Based on the beloved holiday film, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy follows Buddy in his quest to find his true identity. 

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf 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 that his half-brother 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. With a cast of beloved characters and loaded with adventure, Christmas magic, and plenty of humor, Elf Jr. is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays with the entire family!
