Why Elf The Musical Should Be On Your Christmas List This Year
It’s the season to be jolly and if that means singing out loud for all to hear then Elf The Musical is set to bring on an abundance of festive cheer to London theatre goers this Christmas. With previews already in full festive swing, we thought it was only fitting to share our top reasons why the musical should be on your wish list to Santa this year.
1. It’s Christmas
There’s simply no getting away from Buddy the elf’s enthusiasm when it comes to anything Christmassy and there’s no doubt you’ll leave the theatre feeling the same. So if you’re lacking a bit of festive spirit this year, this is the place to find it!
2. Impressive Cast
Transformed into Santa’s little helpers on stage people will include the likes of Ben Forster and Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh in the leading roles of Buddy and Jovie. Joe McGann and Jessica Martin will star as Walter and Emily Hobbs with Jennie Dale as Deb, Mark McKerracher as Santa and Graham Lappin as Store Manager. Here’s a peek of them in action:
3. The Music
Not only is the cast soundtrack filled with feel-good festive tunes, but it’s also performed by some very talented cast members. And let’s not forget the creative team behind the scenes, with songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, vocal arrangements by Phil Reno and musical direction by Stuart Morley. Needless to say the soundtrack is a festive force to be reckoned with, so don’t be surprised if you hear it playing in the background at Christmas parties this year.
4. The Whole Family Can Join
From the light-hearted elf-isms that we all know and love to over indulging our senses in the musical’s genuine merriment – with lashings of syrup of course – Elf is festive fun at its best and there’s no doubt in our minds that adults and children alike will leave wanting more.
