Elf the Musical in London

Elf Musical – An elf is for life, not just for Christmas

How does the stage musical differ from the film? For a start, the story is narrated by Santa Claus himself, not Papa Elf. And the sub-plot is slightly different, with Buddy's cynical brother a Santa- denier, someone who doesn't believe in Father Christmas. Other than that, this is the Elf you know and love, brought to the London stage at last to make Britain laugh.. and laugh.

So what if it isn't Christmas? Elf is a magical fairy story for every time of year.

Elf Musical - The story

Little William 'Buddy' Hobbs is an orphan. When he crawls inside Santa's toy sack he mistakenly ends up at the North Pole, where Santa and his magic elves live and work. The elves bring him up, and for all intents and purposes he thinks he's an elf himself.

It takes a few years for Buddy to realise he's much bigger than the rest of the elves and useless at making toys. His elf family tells him the truth and off he goes, with their blessing, to track down his human relatives.

Buddy's dad, Walter Hobbs, is as cynical as the rest of the New Yorkers Buddy meets. There doesn't appear to be a spirit of Christmas in the city at all, and it's a huge problem since people's belief is what powers Santa's magical sleigh.

Faced with the harsh reality that his father is a non-believer and his brother Michael doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy vows to win his relatives over and help the entire city rediscover the real meaning of Christmas.

There's a raft of excellent show tunes to enjoy, including the sing-along greats Christmastown, World's Greatest Dad, In The Way, Sparklejollytwinklejingley, I'll Believe in You, Just Like Him, A Christmas Song and plenty more.

Funny, charming and beautifully silly, Elf is a feel-good masterpiece of a musical and is set to return to London's West End at the Dominion theatre in 2023. Don't miss it!

Despite battling torrential rain, this show was a feel good night out for all ages. We ranged in age from 7 to 56 and we all loved it!!! Matthew was fabulous and crazy as Elf and the supporting cast were brilliant. The only thing we all agreed on was it would have been better to see this BEFORE Christmas as it felt odd after.

Reviewed on 01 January 2024 by , Fradley, United Kingdom


A very disappointing show. The worst show I’ve ever been to. I was not impressed when they brought politics into with their dig at Donald Trump, that was the start. Then mentioning Opra, Starbucks and the woke promotion of colour and sexuality. I thought I bought expensive tickets to go out at Christmas to enjoy myself with my son, relax and soak up the Christmas cheer. Not to have views and politics pushed on me. Walked out the show, after speaking to the manager as did others from what I saw.

The show was amazing in every way however if I had one thing to mention it would be …. Think carefully about taking children under around 7 years of age as the performance is quite lengthy where our 7 year old who is normally very well behaved in the theatre became a little fidigty as there was a long time from the start and the interval.

Actual show good, general theatre experience terrible

We didn’t get the seats we reserved - had proof that we booked two seats next to each other but for some reason we were sat across from the aisle away and there was no reasoning with theatre/box office staff about why this would massively affect our experience. Thought to order drinks via the online service - they never showed up. Tried to order in the theatre - WiFi doesn’t work and there’s no phone signal. Queues are massive and take ages because there’s only one person manning any station so we couldn’t get anything in the interval.. pretty rubbish to be honest. We travelled 5 hours from north wales to watch this show and although the performance itself was fantastic, the overall experience we had was beyond poor. Wouldn’t come back to a show at the Dominion.

Review: ELF at the Dominion Theatre

Elf: The Musical There are certain shows where you are painfully aware that you are just not the target audience. Arriving at Elf, which is playing a Christmas season at the Dominion Theatre, I tried vainly to go with the flow and just accept the evening for the light, Christmas treat it is meant to be. However the relentless predictability and lack of theatrical imagination left me frustrated. Yet despite the controversially inflated ticket prices for a family show, the rest of the audience appeared to be having a great time and the show delivered the kind of family entertainment they were clearly anticipating.
