2023 – Elf The Musical

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human until his 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 and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. 

Elf – The Musical is presented by SALOS, who have enviable reputation for spectacular shows at The Wyvern Theatre. Their last show, Shrek The Musical, was a sell-out success! 

This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf and to spread some early Christmas Cheer by singing loud for all to hear!
