Arcelus (Jersey Boys, Wicked) stars in the title role of the musical based on the 2003 film of the same name. The musical and its source center on a human orphan, who steals away in Santa's sack one Christmas Eve and is raised as an elf in the North Pole. He soon learns the truth of his heritage when he outgrows his fellow toy makers. Will Ferrell originated the role on screen.
