Elf The Musical – West End cast announced for 2023 revival

Producers of Elf The Musical have announced initial lead casting for the West End revival of the much-loved festive show.

Returning to London’s Dominion Theatre for a second consecutive year, the 2023 production will mark 20 years since the original release of this hit film.

Reprising their roles from 2022 are Georgina Castle (Dirty Dancing, Mamma Mia) as Jovie, Rebecca Lock (The Phantom of the Opera, Avenue Q) as Emily Hobbs, Nicholas Pound (Cats, The Rocky Horror Show) as Santa, Kim Ismay (Wicked, Saturday Night Fever) as Debs and Dermot Canavan (Hairspray, Oklahoma!) as Store Manager.

Further casting is to be announced, including new actors featured in the roles of Buddy and Walter Hobbs.

This production will once again be directed by Philip Wm. McKinley, with choreography by Liam Steel, original set and costume design by Tim Goodchild, lighting design by Patrick Woodroffe, sound by Gareth Owen and video design by Ian William Galloway. Casting will be by Grindrod Burton Casting.

Based on the much-loved 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell, Elf has a book by Tony Award-winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), with songs by Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer).

ELF is a hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Raised as an elf and never quite fitting in, when Santa tells him the truth, Buddy heads to New York to find his birth father, and discovers the gifts of family and love.

Elf originally made its West End premiere at the Dominion Theatre in 2015.

Elf The Musical runs from 15 November 2023 until 6 January 2024
