ELF, the hit Hollywood blockbuster movie has been supersized into a live
arena spectacular for this Christmas with a massive stage featuring
amazing film backdrops on a huge LED screen plus a mobile stage that
travels the auditorium, so everyone gets a close-up view of the action.
The presentation features Santa’s flying sleigh, audience snowball fight,
indoor snowstorm, a giant candy cane journey from the North Pole, aerial
cirque stars and giant tv screens so you don’t miss any of the spectacle.
The story is hilariously recreated by a large cast of performers into the
biggest live Christmas show in the UK. The festive spectacular will feature
West End star Steven Serlin stepping into the big floppy shoes of Will
Ferrell to play Buddy the Elf.
The cast also features ‘Birds Of A Feather’ comedy actor Charlie Quirke as
the Buddy’s New York pal, Charlotte Hall as Jovie, Buddy’s love interest
and Barry Bloxham as Buddy’s long suffering dad.
This Christmas Spectacular production features a book written by Bob
Martin and Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers and Hairspray) and an
original score of great songs by Matt Sklar and Chad Beguelin that has
delighted audiences on Broadway and the West End.
Producer and Director Jon Conway says, “This is the fourth year we have
presented this epic version of the Broadway and Hollywood hit as part of
the World’s Biggest Pantomime brand. ‘Elf’ is always one of the most
popular Christmas films and ‘Buddy The Elf’ a truly iconic character. We
are returning to some venues and have made the show even bigger and
better with new features to make it a really thrilling experience. We are
keenly aware of the economic climate and are one of the few shows to
have reduced our prices from Elf’s last visit for an affordable family
outing! One of the best sights is the audiences dressing up for the show,
especially the dads in elf Christmas sweaters! This is an unmissable Xmas
