The Elf on a Shelf Craze Is Far from Over— Join Us for a Seasonal, Family-Friendly Musical

The beloved tradition that continues to capture the hearts of children and their families everywhere, The Elf on the Shelf, is coming to American Bank Center for the first time ever! Join us on Thursday, December 26th for The Elf on The Shelf: A Christmas Musical.

The Elf on the Shelf is based on a 2005 children's picture book, written by Carol Aebersold and her daughter Chanda Bell, and illustrated by Coë Steinwart. The book tells a Christmas-themed story that explains how Santa Claus knows who is naughty and nice. It describes elves visiting children from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, after which they return to the North Pole until the next holiday season. The Elf on the Shelf comes in a keepsake box that features a hardbound picture book and a small elf.

This all-new musical and premiere stage production includes an exclusive invitation to Santa’s North Pole and engages audiences with a glimpse into the magical lives of Scout Elves. Featuring an original story and score, dazzling sets and costumes, and wondrous moments that make even the most cynical believe, this momentous celebration of the season leaves spirits high and captivates all with the splendor of Christmas.

Complete your The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Musical experience with our exclusive pre-show photo opportunity with a Scout Elf! Photos will take place in front of a magical North Pole backdrop. Children can leave a personalized message for Santa or their Scout Elf using the Christmas Wish Activity Sheet. As a commemorative takeaway for the children in your party, the VIP access badge becomes a keepsake that can be hung on your own Christmas tree at home for years to come.
