Son of a Nutcracker! Buddy the Elf in Holiday Show


Buddy the Elf, known for his contagious good cheer and sugar-fueled diet, will be singing about his adventures onstage at the Music Hall, in Portsmouth. 

AARP is offering a 15 percent discount on tickets for early December shows of Elf The Musical. Based on the 2003 movie Elf, it’s about a young human orphan who crawls into Santa’s toy bag and ends up at the North Pole. Despite his huge stature and poor toymaking abilities, he thinks he’s an elf. When he learns the truth, Buddy travels to New York City to find his birth father. 


“We are thrilled to offer this discounted show, filled with magic, merriment and memories,” says Pam Dube, who is AARP New Hampshire’s communications director. 

Buy tickets for the Ogunquit Playhouse’s production at or by calling 603-436-2400.

Seats under the AARP discount are available for shows on Thursday, Dec. 1, at 1:30 and 7 p.m.; Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 1:30 and 7 p.m.; and Thursday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m. Use the code Elf15 at checkout. The discount is also available with the code by calling the number above or visiting the Music Hall box office, at 28 Chestnut St.
