Friday, 30th Oct 2015

Get ready to sing out loud for all to hear with Elf The Musical

The highly anticipated Elf The Musical has officially opened for a strictly limited 10 week run at the Dominion Theatre. Running until 2nd January, the show will also host a special Gala Opening Night on 5th November in honour of the Alzheimer’s Society.

Based on the heart-warming 2003 hit film starring Will Ferrel in the leading role of everyone’s favourite Elf Buddy, the festive tale follows the journey of an orphaned child who finds himself in the North Pole after crawling into Santa’s bag on Christmas Eve. After being raised as an elf, Buddy journey’s to New York to find his human father and spread his festive cheer. The role of Buddy on stage is played by Ben Forster with Kimberley Walsh as Jovie in the fun, festive, not to be missed production.

Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol is brought back to life on stage

The ghostly Christmas story will star Academy Award-winning actor Jim Broadbent in the infamous role of grumpy penny pincher Scrooge. His character is visited by a series of ghosts from the past, present and future, all of which will play an important part in warming his heart and transforming him into a kinder, gentler man. The stage adaption by Patrick Barlow will introduce the audience to a number of the story’s popular characters played by the likes of Adeel Akhtar, Amelia Bullmore, Keir Charles and Samantha Spiro in the imaginative production at the Noël Coward Theatre.

Fly through the magical night sky with The Snowman at the Peacock Theatre

After James awakes on a white winter’s morning and rushes outside to play in the snow he decides to build his very own snowman. The next morning he wakes up to find that at the stroke of midnight his creation has magically come to life, and so the journey begins! Along the way theatregoers will meet a number of other familiar characters including Father Christmas and of course the dreaded Jack Frost, making this theatrical festive treat perfect for the whole family.
