Music Mountain Theatre presents "Elf, the Musical"

(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Music Mountain Theatre (MMT) presents a special four-weekend run of Elf, the Musical from October 27 through November 19, 2023. Get in the holiday spirit with the family favorite based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit!

A young orphan crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts as a baby and is transported to the North Pole. Buddy grows up thinking he’s not a very good elf due to his large stature and poor toy- making abilities, when the truth is finally revealed that he’s not an elf at all, but a human!

Now a young man, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help the entire city remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Music Mountain Theatre presents "Elf, the Musical"

MMT’s production of Elf the Musical stars the real-life husband and wife pair of Patrick and Kimberly Mertz as Buddy and Jovie, the cynical Macy’s shopgirl with whom Buddy becomes instantly infatuated. Twelve-year-old Rothe Ripley, of Doylestown, is no stranger to the MMT stage, as he played Ralphie in the 2022 production of A Christmas Story and is back in another holiday favorite as Buddy’s half-brother, Michael.

Also joining the cast are some familiar MMT faces, with Jonathan Weirzbicki playing Buddy’s biological father, Walter Hobbs, Anna Hentz as his wife, Emily Hobbs, and David McCloughan, Jr. as Santa Claus himself!
