Overview

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.

Elf! The Musical was extremely cheesy, but perfect for a cold, Christmassy evening! It was very fun, the songs were catchy, and the production values were absolutely mesmerising! There are some surprise special effects thrown in, which absolutely delighted the audience. Ben Forster as the lovable Buddy was brilliant, however Kimberley Walsh was rather disappointing. Overall, the production is a LOT of fun for those who love Christmas - it truly spreads Christmas cheer!

It's a great show to get you into the Christmas spirit for sure, but it didn't do the film justice. Bit tacky in parts, but great for the families to go with their little kids, if you're not into pantomimes but want to see a Christmas show then go ahead, but for the prices they were selling the tickets it was not worth the hype! http://www.rosereview.co.uk/?p=338

An absolute delight to watch! Full of Christmas cheer, Elf! The Musical is full of memorable songs, fun performances and Ben Forster - who is excellent! There are some special effects surprises which are truly delightful. A perfect way to spend a cold winter evening.

The show was visually beautiful and it certainly got me and my friends in the christmas spirit, but there was nothing particularly special about the show that would make me want to see it again (bah-humbug!)
