ELF THE MUSICAL returns to London's Dominion Theatre for a second consecutive year from 15 November 2023 until 6 December 2024.

What is ELF THE MUSICAL about?

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.

The production will run at Dominion Theatre for a limited season from 15 November 2023 until 6 January 2024.
