Elf! the Musical Tickets

Starring Ben Forster (ITV’s Superstar) and Kimberley Walsh (Girls Aloud, Shrek: The Musical), the zany, sugar-sprinkled musical, Elf, hits the West End in time for Christmas. Based on the 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell, will Buddy the oversized elf be able to find his real father and teach the jaded scrooges of New York the true meaning of Christmas?

The West End has avoided Father Christmas’ naughty list this year, as Elf is dropped down the chimney of the Dominion Theatre two months before Christmas Day. Following the story of Buddy, the over-sized elf with Christmas spirit to spare, Elf has your holiday entertainment all wrapped up!

Based on the film Elf (2003) starring Will Ferrell, the musical tells the tale of Buddy, who stowed away in Santa’s sack and found himself raised by elves in the North Pole. When it becomes obvious he’s far too big for standard-issue elf attire, he leaves home to discover who he really is. Still an elf at heart, the naïve Buddy stumbles through the mean streets of New York as he dodges scrooges and jaded Santa-deniers on the journey to find his estranged father. But will Buddy’s holiday cheer land him in trouble, or will he teach everybody the true meaning of Christmas?

Starring Ben Forster, the winner of ITV’s Superstar (2012), and Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh, Elf is an energetic spectacle bursting with catchy tunes and jingle bells. With a book by Tony award-winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone) the show had a successful run on Broadway and promises hearty laughter and rosy cheeks. “You must remember that December is a time for glitz” sings Buddy in the hilarious song ‘Sparklejollytwinklejingley’ – and Elf is full-to-the-brim with it.

Elf will open on 24th October 2015 at the Dominion Theatre and will play until 2nd January 2016.

Best Seats

SeatPlan Recommends: The Dominion theatre is a cavernous space that often feels more like a concert venue than a theatre, but the spectacle of Elf will reach out into the circle. If you want to feel as close as possible to the action, the stalls will be your best bet.
