The story of ELF
When an orphaned baby climbs into Santa’s sack of toys and ends up at the North Pole, a standard night of toy-making turns into marvellous chaos. Buddy is unknowingly taken into the elf community and raised as a pointy-eared friend, but when his large stature and not-so-great toy-making skills become more and more apparent with age, he realises that he may never be the elf that he longs to be.
In an attempt to discover his true identity, Buddy takes Santa’s permission and heads to New York City in search of his biological family, but will he be able to discover the true meaning of Christmas?

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.
