About ELF the Musical

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to see Elf in the West End this year. Imagine you’re at the North Pole and book Elf tickets on TodayTix.

Smiling is Buddy’s favourite thing to do. And once you’ve seen this musical, you’ll leave the Dominion Theatre with a big smile, too. Enjoy all the iconic Elf film references now gloriously transformed for a glossy West End show: revolving doors, department store makeovers, and the beloved Christmas character eating exclusively from the four main food groups — candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup. London Theatre praised this feel-good show: “Buddy is the Christmas hero we need, and you’ll walk away with a pep in your step.”

When Buddy was a baby, he accidentally crawled into Santa’s sack at Christmastime. Then when he woke up, he found himself at the North Pole. His childhood was unlike anyone else’s; he was raised as an elf and spent his entire year making toys for the children on Santa’s good list. He couldn't work out why he struggled to fit in. But Santa reveals a shocking secret — Buddy's a human!

Determined to reunite with his family, he heads to New York, but there’s a problem. Buddy’s never left the North Pole. Can he live a “normal” life and reunite with his family before 25th December? Don’t be a cotton-headed ninny muggins this winter, and see Elf in London.

Even though the Elf movie turns 20 this year, it’s still a defining winter comedy. Elf is often on our screens every year, with millions of children watch Buddy’s hilarious antics year after year. So naturally, the Will Ferrell-led film proved the ideal source material for a Christmas musical.

While you watch Elf on stage, you may see a Disney-fied flair, and that's down to whimsical lyrics by Chad Beguelin. The Tony-winning writer Thomas Meehan and Tony-nominated comedian Bob Martin adapted Elf for the stage with sensational results. The show played two winter seasons on Broadway in 2010 and 2012 and then transferred to London for 2015 and 2022 performances. Third time’s the charm for this musical, as it returns to the Dominion Theatre in 2023.

What to Watch For:

  • There’s a few differences between Elf on stage and the Elf film. Instead of Papa Elf, you’ll see a lot more of Santa Claus — let’s hope he’s not too busy and manages to visit everyone on Christmas Eve.
  • Lyricist Chad Begeulin also worked on West End musicals such as Aladdin and The Wedding Singer. He also co-wrote The Prom, a high school musical following four out-of-work actors as they help a teenage student attend her local dance.
  • When Will Ferrell filmed Elf, he struggled to sleep as he consumed so much candy. He said: “Anything for the movie, I'm there. If it takes eating a lot of maple syrup, then I will—if that's what the job calls for." Let’s hope our West End Buddy doesn’t endure a similar fate.
