ELF - the hit Christmas musical based on the beloved Will Ferrell classic - comes to the Dominion Theatre for a strictly limited 8-week run this festive Christmas season.
ELF is the funny and charming tale of Buddy, who accidentally crawled into Santa’s bag as a toddler and ended up being raised by Santa's elves in the North Pole! Way too tall and not so great at making toys, Buddy doesn't seem to fit in… and knows he’ll never belong. When he finds out the truth, Buddy heads to New York to search for his biological father. After causing some merry mayhem, he discovers the gifts of family and love.
