One of my favourite Christmas films has to be Elf. I love the actor Will Ferrell I think he’s brilliant, he plays the main character Buddy the Elf. If you haven’t seen the film Buddy grew up in the North Pole until one day he found out he isn’t an elf but in fact a human. One Christmas Eve the orphan baby made his way to the North Pole in Santas sack where they decided to raise him. Santa later told him he has a father in New York City and Buddy set off on an adventure to find him. I could watch the film over and over i would never get bored. It is hilarious.
I have a love for theatres. So when I saw Elf advertised I booked straight away. I booked first row on the circle at Theatre Royal Plymouth. Great seats with a great view (there is a bar so may restrict view for some people). And cost £39.00 a ticket. I went with my two sisters.
I was a little worried it wouldn’t live up to the film but it was amazing. Great performance, the actors and actresses were spectacular. Ben Forster played Buddy the Elf, he played the part brilliantly. The whole performance was fun and had you smiling and laughing throughout. Me and my sisters thoroughly enjoyed it.
I have so many favourite parts but wouldn’t want to ruin it for anybody who is going to see it. I will say that my favourite character was Deb, Walter Hobbs’ office assistant. Deb played by Lori Haley Fox was hilarious. Every scene she was in I couldn’t take my eyes off her.
I had a brilliant time, lots of fun and giggles. I’d recommend the show to anyone and everyone. Perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit!
