Elf The Musical

5.0 out of 5.0 stars
Ah, yes, the undisputably best Christmas movie of all times, but on stage, as a musical!
I was very excited heading to the Dominion for this treat, and I wasn’t disappointed. The musical follows the story of the film very closely, only swapping a few plot and flavour points here and there, studding it with adorable and cheerful songs throughout.
A big musical with a large cast, it really comes to life in this production! With sparkling lights and so much Christmas cheer to go around, it’s delightful.
Buddy the Elf sings and dances his way through the story of his life, discovering his human family after leaving his Elf family. And despite the disappointments he suffers throughout, he never loses his spirit. It’s truly one of the best Christmas stories out there, and so well presented with gorgeous sets and dazzling decorations. Sure, it’s not highbrow entertainment, but it fills the heart with warmth and cheer.
Definitely get yourself to the theatre if you like Elf and want to see it come to life with bright lights and sparkling tinsel, with big dance numbers and silly antics. I absolutely loved it, brilliant family show and fantastic seasonal entertainment with a buzzing cast that’s full of energy.
