Posted on 2 November 2022
ELF returns to the West End this November for a merry on-stage display of Will Ferrell's classic Christmas comedy. Recently, new and exciting rehearsal images have been released for the beloved festive classic, which shows the cast joyfully immersed in their performances. To give yourself the ultimate Christmas gift this year, book tickets for ELF the Musical at London’s Dominion Theatre, after all, ‘the best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear'.
It’s Christmas Eve at the North Pole when a night of toy-making and carols turns upside down with the discovery of an orphaned baby who has climbed into Santa’s sack of toys. Taken in and raised amongst the elves of the North Pole, Buddy may have an abundance of enthusiasm, but nothing can change his not-so-great toy-making skills or his human height. Aware that he will never fit in with his little friends, Buddy asks Santa’s permission to make the ultimate journey of discovery. Setting his sights on New York, Buddy sets off in pursuit of his biological family.

From as early as I can recall, writing has always been my passion. Being able to combine this with my love for theatre has been a rewarding and exhilarating experience. I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
