Ten thousand extra Elf tickets released due to popular demand
Following huge public demand, 10,000 extra tickets have been released for Elf - A Christmas Spectaculastarring music legend David Essex and Love Actually star Martine McCutcheon. These tickets are on sale now and include all performances at Birmingham’s Genting Arena from 20 -24 December 2018.
Elf has become the fastest selling Christmas show this year and it is still only May! Over 30,000 tickets have been snapped up in the first three weeks of being on sale, prompting show producers to add extra tickets for Birmingham’s Genting Arena alongside the Motorpoint Arenas in Nottingham and Cardiff. Elf is one of the few shows offering discounted tickets for children (up to age 16) with £10 off most price bands.
The gigantic arena show features incredible special effects including a giant sleigh flying across the arena, an indoor snow blizzard, an iceberg journey and an amazing cast of 100 performers including up to 70 children from local Pauline Quirke Academies for each show. The show will be performed across a 70-foot wide stage and a 60-foot long thrust stage, with some scenes taking place around and above the audience. The staging will be enhanced with giant screens, showing both computer graphic backdrops and live action close-ups.
Hitting the road as Buddy the Elf’s father, David Essex said: “It’s fantastic to see so many people getting excited and tickets flying out for this huge tour when we’ve still got over six months to go! I really can’t wait to take to the stage with this brilliant Christmas story.”
Portraying Buddy’s girlfriend Jovie, Martine McCutcheon said: “It’s so exciting seeing extra tickets and shows being added to the Elf tour, Christmas really can’t come soon enough for me!”
The original stage version of the show 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 new Christmas Spectacular production will feature a book written by Bob Martin and Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers and Hairspray) and an original score of great new songs.
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.
