About The Show

Coming this holiday season WHAT THE ELF?!? is a hilarious, musical extravaganza for kids, parents, grandparents, siblings and reindeer of all ages! On stage for matinee performances from November 30th 2019 through to January 5th 2020. Featuring brand new scenes for 2019, plus all the silly improv goodness and musical fun that made it a hit in the first place. Bring all your little elves down to the Second City for a fun & interactive afternoon at our legendary mainstage theatre, where laughing, dancing and singing along is highly encouraged!

This revised 2019 production is based on the 2015 script by Leslie Seiler, and was created by Nigel Downer, with contributions by Bianca Alongi, Rabiya Mansoor, Rob Lewin, Connie Manfredi, Wilfred Lee, and Kyah Green. New original musical compositions by Dewi Minden and production design by David Sharpe.
