The story of Buddy the Elf is coming to Poteau Friday, Dec. 7, and through Sunday, Dec. 9, at the Carl Albert State College Hamilton Complex.

The production, Elf Jr., the musical, is being put on by the Good Times Community Theatre. The musical is based on the book by Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin. Music is by Matthew Skiar. It is being produced by special arrangements with Music Theatre International, New York City.

Buddy is a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa Claus' bag of gifts and ends up in the North Pole. He is raised as an elf and unaware of his human status before finding out the truth. Buddy then leaves the North Pole to meet his father in New York City. Buddy works to win over his new family and help New York rekindle its Christmas spirit.

Tickets are $10 adults or $8 students and senior citizens. They are available for purchase at the door. The musical will be held 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
