'Elf' is a spritely show
December 13, 2023
The hardest piece is suspending your disbelief in watching TJ Fantini’s superb performance as Buddy the Elf, is not that a 30 year old believes he is an elf or that elves live and make toys in Christmas Town or that Santa (the real one) narrates a story bringing this tale to life. No. The most amazing reality is that Buddy can be utterly and completely happy all the time, finding good in everyone, and committed to singing and hugging to improve every situation.
Go see for yourself, if you can get tickets. “Elf the Musical” plays through Dec. 16 at Anacortes Community Theatre.
