Buy Elf the Musical tickets for the perfect festive treat for the whole family as this iconic film returns to the West End

There’s only one place to find all the Christmas cheer you need over the festive season this year as a brand new production of Elf! the Musical opens at the Dominion Theatre.

Based on the beloved 2003 film starring Will Ferrell, the musical follows Buddy, a human who mistakenly crawled into a bag of Santa’s gifts and was transported to the North Pole. He is raised by Santa’s elves and unaware of his origins until his poor toy-making skills cause him to face the truth. Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to meet his family and help the city to rediscover the true meaning of Christmas.

Elf premiered on Broadway in 2010 and made its West End debut in 2015 at the Dominion Theatre with a cast that included Ben Forster and Kimberley Walsh. Since then, the musical has proved hugely successful in the UK with a subsequent UK tour in 2017 and a massive arena tour in 2018 that saw the audience take part in a giant snowball fight.

The new production of Elf is directed by Philip Wm McKinley and will feature choreography by Liam Steel, set and costume design by Tim Goodchild, sound by Gareth Owen and lighting by Patrick Woodroffe. Casting for the upcoming production is yet to be be announced.

The musical has a score by Tony Award nominees Chad Beguelin and Matthew Sklar, whose previous credits include The Wedding Singer and recent Broadway and Netflix hit The Prom. The infectious score includes numbers such as “Sparklejollytwinklejingley”, “I’ll Believe in You” and “Nobody Cares About Santa”.

Elf! the Musical was one of the hottest tickets in the West End when it last played in 2015, breaking the box office record at the Dominion Theatre three times during its run! Be sure to book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
