NEWS: Elf the Musical to Return to the West End

The musical will return for the festive season, returning to the Dominion Theatre from the 15th November.

Due to popular demand, Elf the Musical will head to the West End once more for Christmas, bringing the festive film back to the stage for the second consecutive year. It will play for a strictly limited season from the 15th November until the 6th January 2024. Tickets are on sale now.

ELF is the funny and charming tale of Buddy, who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts as a baby and is transported back to the North Pole and raised as an elf! Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities finally cause him to face the truth and realise he’ll never belong in the North Pole. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York to find his birth father, discover his true identity and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

While casting has yet to be announced, the musical will once again be directed by Philip Wm. McKinley and feature choreography by Liam Steel. The creative team will also includes: original set and costume design by Tim Goodchild, lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe, sound by Gareth Owen and video design by Ian William Galloway. Casting will be by Grindrod Burton Casting.

Elf is based on the 2003 film starring Will Ferrell and the musical features a book by Tony Award-winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), with songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer).
