Sangamon Auditorium to host Broadway musical

John Kurecki, Features Reporter

As part of the UIS Broadway Series, the musical “Elf” will be coming to campus for a show on the night of Friday, Nov. 6, as well as an afternoon show the following day.

UIS employees and students are offered a slight discount starting at $50 per ticket, whereas general admission starts at $55.

The musical, based on the 2003 film starring Will Ferrell, began its Broadway run in the winter of 2010, and it was last presented there on Jan. 6, 2013.

The Sangamon Auditorium describes the show as “the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole.”

While this is the last entry of the 2015-2016 UIS Broadway Series in the fall semester, in the spring the UIS Broadway Series will bring other famous titles such as “Beauty and the Beast” and “Annie” to campus.

Those interested can choose from a variety of subscription options, starting at $222.
