Christmas comedy classic 'Elf' coming to Astra

From Local Sources

As a complimentary piece to Jasper's O'Tannenbaum Days, Next Act, Inc., will present the Christmas comedy classic Elf at the historic Astra Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 1. 

Tickets are $8 and can be purchased online in advance at or, if available, the night of the show at the doors. Show time is 7 p.m. and the Astra's doors will open at 6:15 p.m.

Elf, starring Will Ferrell, James Caan, and Bob Newhart, was originally released in 2003 and was directed by Jon Favreau.  The classic Christmas comedy follows Ferrell's character after he inadvertently wreaks havoc in the North Pole, due to his ungainly size, and is sent to the New York City in search of his true identity—and father.
