NEW YORK (AP) - The Christmas musical based on Will Ferrell's movie "Elf" is returning to Broadway foe the holidays.

Producers said Thursday the show will start performances on Nov. 9 at Al Hirschfeld Theatre on 45th Street, the same venue where it made its debut in late 2010. It will close Jan. 6.

No casting was revealed.

The show features songs by Tony Award-nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin ("The Wedding Singer") and a book by Tony winners Thomas Meehan ("The Producers," ''Hairspray") and Bob Martin ("The Drowsy Chaperone"). Casey Nicholaw of "The Book of Mormon and "Spamalot," returns to direct and choreograph.

"Elf" will find competition not just from the Radio City Christmas Spectacular but also from a musical stage version of the classic film "A Christmas Story."
