Based on the hilarious smash-hit film Elf (2003) starring Will Ferrell, Elf - The Musical is a rip-roaring yuletide delight. Following a run on Broadway, where it broke box office records, and further sell-out runs in Plymouth and Dublin, Elf - The Musical will make its much-anticipated London debut this winter.

The 2015 production will star Girls Aloud’s own Kimberley Walsh as Jovie and the tremendous Ben Forster (winner of ITV’s Superstar) as Buddy and boasts a book by Tony Award-winners Bob Martin and Thomas Meehan, gloriously creative set design and costumes by Olivier Award-winner Tim Goodchild and lighting by fellow Olivier-winner Tim Lutkin.

Elf - The Musical tells the story of young orphan Buddy who accidently crawls into Santa’s sack and finds himself transported to the North Pole. Buddy is raised as an elf but his huge size and less than extraordinary skills as a toy-maker mean that he can’t hide from the truth forever: Buddy is human. Determined to find his birth father, Buddy heads off to New York where he can’t help but spread some much-needed Christmas cheer.

This vibrant new musical is perfectly pitched for all the family, with loads of gags and fun for the kids and enough humour and wit to keep the adults thoroughly entertained. Chock-full of warmth and hilarious situations, Elf - The Musical is a fantastic Christmas show bubbling over with merriment as well as ingenious stage contraptions and some incredible star power.

    Sadly two of our party had restricted view of the stage although we were row O in the stalls so were in prime position and paid nearly £500 for the 5 seats booked
