Christmas is here early, as it's been announced that ELF THE MUSICAL is returning to the West End.
After a successful run last year, the festive musical returns to the Dominion Theatre from 15 November 2023.
Running for a second consecutive year, Elf is returning for a strictly limited season from 15 November 2023 till 6 January 2024. Before last year, the show hadn't been in the West End for seven years, and had clearly been missed!
Based on the iconic festive movie, Elf is the story of Buddy, who as a child crawled into Santa's bag of gifts and was transported to the North Pole and brought up as an elf. When he discovers as an adult that he's actually a human, he embarks on a quest to New York to find his true identity and help the city remember the true meaning of Christmas.
The cast is still to be announced, but the creatives are:
- Book by Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone)
- Songs by Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer)
- Directed by Philip Wm. McKinley
- Choreography by Liam Steel
- Original set and costume design by Tim Goodchild
