Festive Things to do in London this December – See Elf The Musical

By  | 

Throughout December we will be bringing you our pick of the best festive events and experiences in London. We kick off with the perfect show to get you in Christmas spirit with Elf The Musical.

ELF, the smash hit musical returns to London in a new production at the Dominion Theatre for a strictly limited 8-week season finishing on 7 January 2023. In 2015, the last time it was at the Dominion Theatre, it was the venue’s fastest-selling show in nearly a century!

Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit starring Will Ferrell, ELF 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).

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.

Renowned theatre actress Rebecca Lock plays Emily Hobb, She joins Simon Lipkin as Buddy, Georgina Castle as Jovie, Tom Chambers as Walter Hobbs, Kim Ismay as Debs, Nicholas Pound as Santa and Dermot Canavan as Store Manager.

A fast-paced,  visually colourful delight, fans of the movie will not be disppapointed with Philip Wm. McKinley’s direction. The set and costume design by Tim Goodchild is impressive and the choreography by Liam Steel and music direction by Alan Williams will have you tapping your toes throughout.

There are some real ‘wow’ magical moments at the end, which close this fabulous production perfectly!
