elf musical london

Hit festive musical Elf will be back in London for Christmas!

Adapted from the film of the same name, which starred Will Ferrell, Elf will run at the Dominion Theatre from 14 November 2022 to 7 January 2023.


The musical follows young orphan Buddy who is raised as one of Santa’s elves in the North Pole before heading to New York in search of his birth family.

The stage adaptation has a book by Bob Martin and Thomas Meehan with songs from The Prom duo Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin.

The production will be directed by Philip Wm McKinley, with choreography by Liam Steel, set and costume design by Tim Goodchild, lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe and sound design by Gareth Owen.

Casting, to be announced, is by Grindrod Burton Casting.

ELF is the funny and charming tale of Buddy, who mistakenly crawled into Santa’s bag as a baby and was raised as an elf! Way too tall and not so great at his job, Buddy is the North Pole’s biggest misfit… and knows he’ll never belong. When Santa tells him the truth, Buddy heads to New York to find his birth father (who turns out to be quite high on the Naughty List).

After causing some merry mayhem in Manhattan, Buddy finally discovers the gift of family and falls in love. And when Santa’s sleigh crashes in Central Park, it’s Buddy who finds a way to save Christmas forever!
