Following on from recent musicals ‘The Wizard of Oz’, ‘Peter Pan’ and ‘A Christmas Carol’, the Brookside Theatre are proud to announce this years’ Christmas spectacular, ELF – THE MUSICAL.
The all-singing, all-dancing musical version of the Will Ferrell movie, tells the story of Buddy The Elf, a human accidentally transported to the North Pole as a baby and raised there with the misbelief that he, like everyone around him except Santa and Mrs. Claus, is an elf. Upon learning the truth, he journeys to New York City to find his father. Arriving in the big, bad city, he is distraught to learn that his birth father is on the “naughty” list and that his half-brother Michael doesn’t believe in Santa. Luckily, Buddy makes some new friends in the city, including love-interest Jovie, his step-mom Emily and even Walter’s secretary, Deb. Even still, things go badly with his father and Buddy seems more lost than ever, but when Santa’s sleigh is stranded in New York, Buddy rallies those around him to help Santa and save Christmas!
Artistic Director and the theatre’s founder, Jai Sepple explained, “Our Christmas productions have become a community traditional and certainly one of annual highlights here at the theatre – always a cause for great excitement. This year is certainly no exception as we are thrilled to have snagged the regional premiere rights for this fantastic family musical.”
ELF – THE MUSICAL takes place from 10 – 20 December 2021 and tickets are now on sale from the theatres’ box office on 01708 755775 or online at http://www.brooksidetheatre.com.
