Tash Holway and More Join Elf The Musical at the Dominion Theatre
Full Cast Revealed for the Kimberley Walsh-starring Adaptation in London’s West End
Earlier in the year it was revealed that the latest musical headed to the stage of the Dominion Theatre was an adaptation of Elf, the hit 2003 film starring Will Ferrell as Buddy trying to make it in New York City.
Since then we’ve learnt that the show is set to feature Ben Forster in the Ferrell role, plus Kimberley Walsh as Jovie, Joe McGann, Jessica Martin, Jennie Dale, Mark McKerracher and Graham Lappin.
Now more names have been added to the list, with the likes of Tash Holway, Nicola Coates and Matt Holland revealed. The full list of new names includes Katie Bradley, Charlie Bull, Alex Fobbester, Anton Fosh, Charlotte Gale, Francis Haugen, Paul Hutton, Mark Iles, Noah Key (alternating with Ewan Rutherford), Ceili O’Connor, Debbie Paul, Joanna Rennie, Barnaby Thompson and Ed White.
Elf The Musical, like the film, follows Buddy as he leaves his home in the North Pole and becomes a fish-out-of-water in New York City. Buddy thought he was one of the elves, but he is in fact a human, who stowed away with Santa as a baby and was raised in the North Pole. Now he knows the truth he heads out to the city to find his real father, but whilst there he struggles to fit in with society and we witness his hilarious journey as he tries to connect with his father and find his place in the world.
Tash Holway, one of the new performers added to the list, has previously appeared in a range of shows around the country, including both Aladdin and Robin Hood for the Cambridge Arts Theatre and I Love You Because for the Jermyn Street Theatre.
Meanwhile, many of those headed to witness the production will be hoping to see the likes of Kimberley Walsh live onstage. The former Girls Aloud singer has previously appeared in another family adaptation in Shrek The Musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
Elf The Musical replaces the likes of Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games when it runs at the Dominion Theatre from Thursday 5th November 2015 (previews from Saturday 24th October 2015) to Saturday 2nd January 2016.
