Not the Wil Ferrell film, but this musical is just as joyous…

Based on the beloved 2003 film starring Will Ferrell, the musical Elf will return to the West End this Christmas. 

Returning to Dominion Theatre, for an eight-week festive run from November 14, Elf is a charming Christmas tale that is as funny as the original film.

It tells the story of Buddy, who accidentally crawls into Santa’s sack as a baby and is raised as a really big elf in the North Pole. 

He decides to return to New York to discover his true identity and to help the city remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Simon Lipkin stars as Buddy alongside Georgina Castle as his love interest, Jovie.

Written byTony Award-winners Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin, with songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, Elf is an all-singing, all-dancing festive treat for the whole family. 

Elf is on at the Dominion Theatre from November 14, 2022 to January 6, 2023. 

Tickets, from £20, are on sale now at elflondon.com
