With a large cast, the winter spectacular will star one of the UK’s most exciting rising comedy talents, Jordan Conwaywho will step into the big floppy shoes of Will Ferrell. Jordan takes on the iconic role fresh from playing Charlie Chaplin in London and Los Angeles in the acclaimed comedy play ‘Laurel and Chaplin-The Feud’ and flying high as Peter Pan opposite Boy George in the spectacular arena tour that sailed into the P&J Live, last Christmas.

Jordan Conway said: “Elf is always one of the most popular holiday films and Buddy The Elf is a truly iconic character, one I am incredibly excited about bringing to life on stage. I love coming to Scotland as audiences there are always welcoming and up for a great night and I love playing Aberdeen. We promise another heart-warming and hilarious night out with great special effects. One of the best sights is the audiences dressing up for the show, especially the dads in Elf Christmas sweaters. This is an unmissable treat.”

The cast also features Kelly Benlaki as Buddy’s love interest, Jovie and Barry Bloxham as Buddy’s long-suffering dad.

The show is produced and directed by legendary panto and musical comedy producer Jon Conway, for The World’s Biggest Productions Limited. With a book by Bob Martin and Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers and Hairspray) and an original score of great songs by Matt Sklar and Chad Beguelin that has delighted audiences on both Broadway and the West End, as Buddy might say, “You’d have to be cotton-headed ninny muggins” to miss this feel-good festive extravaganza.”

Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment, Exhibitions & Marketing at P&J Live, said: “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear and we’re sure you will join us as everyone’s favourite festive movie is brought to life in this on-stage spectacular. The show was a huge hit with audiences back in 2022 and we’re excited to see it return.”
