What they say: ELF is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
What we say: “Wow! What an amazing, fun filled musical! True to the film, the giggles and laughter started immediately and didn’t stop…!!!
I love the whole experience of a West End show and Elf is bursting with original songs, great dancing and Christmas cheer! It’s certainly a show to put a smile on your face 🙂
The show follows the film plot line perfectly and the characters came to life with wonderful performance by Ben Forster (Buddy), Kimberley Walsh (Jovie) and Joe McGann (Walter Hobbs). The whole audience appeared to be captured by the performances – and the young boy that played Michael was outstanding and also appeared to enjoy every second of being on stage!
I recommend the show to any families that enjoy Christmas pantomimes or theatre experiences – this would be a great first London show for any child (or adult!) to enjoy this festive season!”
