Starring LOUISE ENGLISH as Emily

December 2018 Arena Tour


LOUISE will star as Emily, Buddy's stepmother, in the December arena tour of the musical, ELF The Christmas Spectacular.

Starring alongside Louise will be pop legend David Essex as Buddy the Elf's grumpy father and Love Actually star and singer Martine McCutcheon as Buddy's girlfriend, Jovie. Buddy the Elf will be played by comedy actor Tam Ryan.

This new Christmas production will feature a book written by Bob Martin and Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers and Hairspray) and an original score of new songs.

The original staging will be enhanced with giant screens, showing both computer graphic backdrops and live-action close-ups.

Essex said: "The big special effects that we have lined-up are incredible, including a giant sleigh which will fly across the arena, an indoor snow blizzard and lots of skating which all adds to this perfect Christmas story."

The 5,000-seat arena layout will have a 70ft wide stage and a 60ft long thrust stage, with some scenes taking place around and above the audience.

The cast also features Father Christmas and a line-up of 70 performers, including children from local Pauline Quirke Academy stage schools.

Elf will be produced by WBP Ltd, the team behind last year's Christmas spectacular Peter Pan, which played at Arena Birmingham and The SSE Arena, Wembley.
