First Stage’s holiday run of Elf The Musical has brought in nearly a half-million dollars in ticket sales, making it the highest-grossing production in the youth theater’s history.

First Stage has added four shows to its schedule, which originally included 37 public performances between Nov. 23 and Jan. 5, in response to high ticket demand. The show is based on the 2003 holiday film starring Will Ferrell.

Ticket sales for the musical are at $472,204 as of Tuesday, surpassing First Stage’s original goal of $375,900.
