The Elf On a Shelf Magical Journey begins November 18 at Arlington's Choctaw Stadium (formerly Globe Life Park).
This holiday season, not only will Santa Claus be coming to town in North Texas, but so will The Elf on the Shelf. Perhaps you’ve heard of him. If you have a young child in your orbit, I almost guarantee you have. In recent years it seems Christmas cannot start without that ever-watching elf.
Now, they’re even getting theatrical. The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey is coming to Arlington’s Choctaw Stadium (formerly The Ballpark in Arlington, the Texas Rangers’ old ballpark) starting November 18th.
The holiday phenomenon, from Constellation Immersive in association with The Lumistella Company, is becoming a Texas thing. It was a hit last year in Los Angeles, welcoming more than 130,000 people during its run.
“As the coronavirus pandemic continues to present challenges to families everywhere, we are proud to safely transform The Elf on the Shelf tradition into an outdoor experience and expand the show into new and innovative realms,” Lumistella Company co-CEO Christa Pitts says in a statement.
Audiences will be able to discover the magic of The Elf on the Shelf through a new, open-air, walk-through experience created and designed specifically for the concourse at Choctaw Stadium in Arlington. Ticket goers will journey into the concourse, find what life is like elf sized and explore enchanting Texas-sized scenery amid a company of 50 performers. And, who knows. . . the big man himself might even make an appearance.
Emmy Award-winning creative director and set designer David Korins (of Broadway’s Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen, plus the 2019 Oscars) returns to design the show’s scenic worlds, which promise to be bigger and better. The creative team also includes director David Alpert, lighting designer David Weiner and composer Curtis Moore.
The open-air experience designed to be housed within the concourse of the stadium will follow social distancing rules and all current health and safety precautions. Shows will run November 18th through January 2nd.
Ticket are on sale now, and prices start at $19.95 for children and are $24.95 for adults. For more information on The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey, tickets and packages, visit the show’s full website.
“One of our immediate goals after the success of last year’s show was to bring this experience to new audiences,” says Vance Garrett, chief creative officer at Constellation Immersive. “And I can’t wait for families in Dallas/Fort Worth to immerse themselves in a new holiday tradition.”
