ABOUT THE SHOW
West End star Ben Forster takes the role Will Ferrell made famous on the silver screen in this toe-tapping stage adaptation of the 2003 festive comedy.
Staged at the Lowry in Salford, this family-friendly musical tells the story of Buddy, a young orphan child who crawls into Father Christmas's bag of gifts one year, and is accidentally whisked away to the North Pole, where the nonplussed elves raise him as one of their own.
Years later, once Buddy has grown to adulthood, he returns to New York City to find his birth father and help the people of the Big Apple rediscover the true meaning of Christmas.
This vibrant new musical is perfectly pitched for all the family, with loads of gags and fun for the kids and enough humour and wit to keep the adults thoroughly entertained. Chock-full of warmth and hilarious situations, Elf - The Musical is a fantastic Christmas show bubbling over with merriment as well as ingenious stage contraptions and some incredible star power.
