Elf the Musical to Open in London’s West End this Winter

Elf, the hilarious and heart-warming Musical based on the hit movie starring Will Ferrell, is coming to London this Christmas! The musical will run for a limited period (8 weeks) at Dominion Theatre in London. The run will open from 14th November 2022 to 7th January 2023.

Produced by the team behind The Book of Mormon and written by Tony Award-winner Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), Elf is the perfect Christmas treat for all the family.

Elf the Musical has songs by Chad Beguelin and Matthew Sklar.

The Musical was first staged in December 2010 at Al Hirschfeld Theatre on Broadway, where it became a critical and commercial success. The show ran on Broadway from 2010 to 2013.

Elf the Musical tells the story of Buddy, an orphan who sneaks into Santa’s gift bag and is then sent to the North Pole. Despite being unaware of his human nature, Buddy eventually realizes he is a human when confronted by his large size and poor toymaking skills.

Buddy sets out to New York City with Santa’s permission to locate his birth father, uncover his real identity, and restore the true nature of Christmas to New York.

Elf is a heart-warming story of family, friendship, and the spirit of Christmas. Buddy is a lovable character who is determined to make everyone happy. His infectious personality will put a smile on your face and remind you of the true meaning of Christmas.
