Starring award-winning Coronation Street actress and singer Kym Marsh as Buddy the Elf’s girlfriend, Jovie, and Shaun Williamson (Barry Evans in EastEnders, Extras) as Buddy’s dad Walter Hobbs. Reprising his role as Buddy the Elf will be comedy actor Tam Ryan, who counts Priscilla Presley amongst his past leading ladies. The cast also features Father Christmas and a line-up of 70 performers, including children from local Pauline Quirke Academy stage schools.
As well as her role as Coronation Street’s Michelle Connor, a part she has played since 2006, Kym Marsh has also enjoyed a successful pop career, initially as a member of the band Hear’Say, then subsequently as a solo singer. She has also appeared regularly on ITV’s Loose Women, and featured in the ITV series Popstar to Operastar.
Actor, singer and former EastEnders star Shaun Williamson is currently appearing in the new series on Quest of Al Murray’s Great British Pub Quiz, as barman and resident brainbox (winner of Celebrity Mastermind, three-time winner of Celebrity Pointless, winner of Celebrity Eggheads and winner of The Chase Celebrity Special).
Tam Ryan first stepped into the big floppy shoes of Will Ferrell in December 2018 to play Buddy the Elf and was met with universal acclaim from critics and audiences alike.
The original stage version of Elf played to record breaking audiences in 2015/2016 at London’s Dominion Theatre and firmly established this heart-warming tale of Buddy the Elf leaving Santa at the North Pole to seek his real father in New York as a Christmas classic. This Christmas Spectacular production features a book written by Bob Martin and Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers and Hairspray) and an original score of great songs. The original staging has been enhanced with giant screens, showing both computer graphic backdrops and live action close-ups. The 5,000 seat arena layout has a 70-foot wide stage and a 60-foot long thrust stage, with some scenes taking place around and above the audience.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Elf - A Christmas Spectacular are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
