‘Elf,’ 8 more Wilmington events

It’s the last full weekend before Christmas, and it’s pretty much your last chance to catch some holiday-themed entertainment. Luckily, there are lots of options, but you might want to act soon to ensure you get a good spot. 

From what I hear, for example, some of the five scheduled performances of “Elf: The Musical” at Thalian Hall are close to selling out. To wit: 

Jeff Hidek as Buddy in Thalian Association's production of "Elf: The Musical."

When I was leaving Thalian Hall last Sunday after seeing Thalian Association Community Theatre’s fully charming production of “Elf: The Musical,” I overheard a woman saying how she “really needed some true holiday entertainment. I’m so glad that’s what this was.”

She’s absolutely right in that, when it comes to feel-good holiday entertainment, “Elf: The Musical” — which of course is based on the beloved movie starring Will Ferrell — checks all the boxes: sweet, slightly sentimental story; bright, catchy tunes; humor that’s mostly edge-free but with a few subversive moments; and just enough emotion and nostalgia to make you feel warm and fuzzy about the Christmas season.
