Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit starring Will Ferrell, Elf features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone). The production will feature direction and choreography by Morgan Young (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), set design and costumes by Olivier Award winner Tim Goodchild, lighting design by Olivier Award winner Tim Lutkin, with sound design by Clem Rawling.

Ben Forster will star in the leading role of Buddy the Elf. He will be joined by Joe McGann as Walter Hobbs, Aoibhínn McGinnity as Jovie and Jessica Martin as Emily Hobbs.

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. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner Elf.

The New York Times says that Elf is “A SPLASHY, PEPPY, SUGAR-SPRINKLED HOLIDAY ENTERTAINMENT!” USA Today calls Elf “ENDEARINGLY GOOFY!” Variety proclaims, “ Elf is happy enough for families, savvy enough for city kids and plenty smart for adults!”

Join the festive fun as this magical Christmas treat comes to Plymouth – but don’t be on the naughty list by missing out, make sure you book your tickets!

Vibrant and rainbowbright, Elf is a seasonal sizzler

The Herald

From start to finish Elf The Musical is an utterly wonderful, brilliant, heartwarming, electric, endearing, joyously glittery show, with bells on! A glorious explosion of tinsel, twinkle and Christmas magic.

If you want to stick a big smile on your face this Christmas and want something different to the traditional pantomime then Elf is the ticket for you.

A delightfully offbeat, fish-out-of water yarn with hilarious consequences
