The Brookside Theatre’s Christmas production this year is Elf The Musical, which will run from 10-23 December 2021.

After mistakenly crawling into Santa’s toy sack as a young orphan boy, Buddy is raised by elves at the North Pole. Unaware of the fact that he’s human, Buddy’s enormous size and lack of natural toy making skills that the other elves possess eventually forces him to face the truth. With Santa’s blessing, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, Walter Hobbs, a cynical no-nonsense workaholic.

Buddy soon discovers that most New Yorkers no longer believe in Santa and the spirit of Christmas. The problem is Santa’s sleigh will only fly if people believe in him. Buddy’s unrelenting sunny disposition and a profoundly ingrained love of Christmas not only creates hilarity amongst the cynicism of New Yorkers but may save Christmas…

Elf The musical features a host of unforgettable songs, high-energy dance routines, hilarious script, beautiful costumes and mind-blowing special effects.
