The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey, the holiday phenomenon from Constellation Immersive in association with The Lumistella Company, expands to North Texas, where audiences will discover the magic of The Elf on the Shelf through a new walk-through experience created and designed specifically for the concourse at Choctaw Stadium in Arlington (formerly Globe Life Park).

Santa’s Christmas Compass has gone haywire, and Scout Elf Tiny Tinkerman and the Scout Elves need human help to get Christmas back on course. Audiences will journey into the concourse at Choctaw Stadium, shrink down to elf size, and explore enchanting, Texas-sized scenery showcasing a company of 50 cheer-building performers.

Enjoy dazzling scenery of the Twinkling Tree Grove, drop your wishlist at Santa’s Mailroom, snap fun photos in the Magical Elf Play photo booths, and shop for holiday treats and gifts at the Texas Christkindl Market.

Award-winning creative director and set designer, David Korins (Broadway’s “Hamilton, “Dear Evan Hansen,” Oscars 2019) also returns to design scenic worlds that promise to be bigger and better. The creative team also includes director David Alpert, lighting designer David Weiner, and composer Curtis Moore who will further bring the beloved world of The Elf on the Shelf to multi-sensory life in a theatrical collaboration like none other.
