Elf the Musical to run at the Dominion Theatre over Christmas

A new production of  Elf  the musical is running at London´s Dominion Theatre from 14th November 2022 to 7th January 2023 for a strictly limited eight-week season.

The new version of the show, produced by Temple Live Entertainment,  has yet to announce casting. It will be directed by Philip Wm McKinley, with original set and costume design by Tim Goodchild, choreography by Liam Steel, lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe and sound by Gareth Owen. Casting will be by Grindrod Burton Casting.

Based on the iconic 2003 feature film starring Will Ferrell, the piece  is the funny and charming tale of Buddy, who mistakenly crawled into Santa’s bag as a baby and was raised as an elf! Way too tall and not so great at his job, Buddy is the North Pole’s biggest misfit… and knows he’ll never belong. When Santa tells him the truth, Buddy heads to New York to find his birth father (who turns out to be quite high on the Naughty List). After causing some merry mayhem in Manhattan, Buddy finally discovers the gift of family and falls in love. And when Santa’s sleigh crashes in Central Park, it’s Buddy who finds a way to save Christmas forever!

The show has a book by Tony Award-winners Thomas Meehan (Annie) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), with songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer).

Elf was first seen on Broadway in 2010, with a West End premiere (also at the Dominion) following in 2015 – where it became the fastest selling show at the venue since it opened in 1929.
