Based on the beloved 2003 film of the same name that starred Will Ferrell, it tells the story 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."
Casting is still to be announced.
It is produced in London by Michael Rose and U-Live in association with the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin. To book tickets, contact the box office on 0845 200 7982, or visit www.elfthemusical.co.uk.
