It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Dallas Children’s Theater— The Happy Elf is back on stage starting Nov. 27.

Harry Connick Jr.’s The Happy Elf follows Eubie, an elf who has been tasked with bringing his energy and happiness to Bluesville, the naughtiest town around.

The play at Dallas Children’s Theater is an adaptation of the  movie of the same name. It’s bound to be filled with “zany magical antics, toe-tapping jazz dance numbers, and sleighfuls of holiday charm,” according to the press release.

K. Doug Miller directed the production, Megan Kelly Bates took on choreography and Michelle Harvey designed the staircase and holiday scenes.

“It’s a fun, different kind of story,” Dallas Children’s Theater Artistic Director Nancy Schaeffer said in the press release. “Perfect for families who love singing, dancing, and a naughty town turning nice. Who doesn’t love a holiday musical filled with quirky, goofy, elves?”

The play will run from Nov. 27 – Dec. 3. Times and tickets can be found here.
