Ben Forster, Kimberley Walsh, Joe McGann and Jessica Martin star in the London premiere of the smash hit musical Elf.

Playing for a strictly limited 10-week season at the Dominion Theatre, Elf is based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit starring Will Ferrell and tells the 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.

Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s 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, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Ben Forster leads the cast as Buddy. The winner of 2012's ITV show Superstar, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s TV talent search for the rock musical Jesus Christ Superstar, his other credits include Evita at the Dominion Theatre. His forthcoming co-star Kimberley Walsh rose to fame as one fifth of the award-winning pop group Girls Aloud and boasts a starring role in Shrek The Musical. Joe McGann's numerous West End credits include The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui, Of Mice And Men at the Old Vic and Oliver!.

Elf features a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin, with songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin.
