About ELF the Musical

Make sure your winter West End theatre trips are sparklejollytwinklejingly with Elf in London. Everyone’s favourite buddy returns to the West End just in time for Christmas 2023. Elf tickets are available on London Theatre now.

The Elf musical is based on the 2003 film of the same name, but there's a major difference between the Elf film and Elf on stage. While Papa Elf plays a crucial role in the Elf film, you won't see him on stage. Instead, you'll see a lot more of Santa Claus — it is Christmastime after all. Plus, there's a few more references to Christmases in the 2020s rather than the early 2000s.

Elf premiered at the Dominion Theatre in 2015, starring Jay McGuiness as Buddy. Simon Lipkin then played Buddy in 2022. The Christmas spirit returns to the Dominion Theatre for Elf London performances in 2023.

What is Elf the Musical about?

The Elf musical is based on the hit Christmas film of the same name. Elf centres around Buddy, a lovable yet awkward misfit. As a young boy, Buddy accidentally found himself inside Santa’s sack and eventually grew up in the North Pole with Santa and his elves. Even though he's raised as an elf alongside other elves, Buddy struggles to fit in with fellow hardworking elves. Once Buddy gets older, he learns that he isn't an elf, but a human. How is this possible?

To learn where he really comes from, Buddy heads to New York to reunite with his birth father. But Buddy's never ventured outside of the North Pole before. How will he behave? What happens in New York? How do you get around? While in New York, Buddy learns a great deal about himself and the wider world. And with Santa crashing in Central Park, can Buddy the Elf share the Christmas spirit?

Elf is a landmark Christmas film, so you can expect plenty of festive songs to be stuck in your head once you’ve seen the musical. Listen out for songs including “Christmastown,” “There is a Santa Claus,” and “The Story of Buddy the Elf", a musical number that sees Buddy relays how he ended up in the North Pole in the first place.

Tickets to Elf are available on London Theatre now. Book your Elf tickets on London Theatre today.
