Elf is a 2003 American Christmas comedy film written and directed by Jon Favreau. Will Ferrell plays Buddy, a human raised by Santa's elves who discovers his true roots and travels to New York City to find his biological father. In supporting roles, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen, Edward Asner, and Bob Newhart are featured.
Following the film’s release, it received rave reviews from viewers and critics alike. "A movie full of Yuletide cheer, Elf is a spirited, good-natured family comedy, and it benefits greatly from Will Ferrell's funny and charming performance as one of Santa's biggest helpers," the Rolling Stones said. Another review from Robert Egert said, ‘one of those rare Christmas comedies that has a heart, a brain and a wicked sense of humor, and it charms the socks right off the mantelpiece.’
The film was a critical and economic triumph, generating $220 million worldwide on a budget of $33 million. Many critics and audiences applauded Ferrell's portrayal as Buddy, with many calling it one of his best. Elf: The Musical, a 2010 Broadway musical, was inspired by the film, as was NBC's 2014 stop motion animated television special Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas.
Now, Elf has been turned into a live and immersive experience with ELF IN CONCERT! Experience the timeless comedy like never before in this one-of-a-kind experience as the orchestra plays along to the original score by John Debney.
The composer and conductor explains, “I’m so thrilled to be working with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and CineConcerts on the upcoming Elf in Concert. Writing the score was a true highlight of my career. Seeing the joy that the music and film brings to audiences each year is truly wonderful. Elf has really become a modern classic and bringing this into concert halls worldwide is an absolute honor. I very much look forward to presenting this unforgettable concert experience to live audiences worldwide!”
Elf in Concert will be live at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on Friday, the 24th of November, 2023. This is your chance to have a taste of the highly-anticipated screening of Elf. Join Buddy and the elves soon! Tickets are available here by clicking ‘get tickets.’
