IT'LL be time to Buddy up this year with Elf: The Musical coming to Dunfermline.

The show will be performed at Carnegie Hall from December 7 to 10.

Graeme Shield, Kelty Musical Association’s vice-president, said: “We were delighted to be awarded the rights to perform Elf the Musical and look forward to bringing it to Dunfermline in December.

“It’s a huge toe-tapping, crowd-pleasing hug of a musical – the perfect winter-warmer.

"Featuring lots of laughs, big performances and a talented ensemble cast of singers and dancers, we believe Elf the Musical is the ideal way to welcome people of all ages back into our theatre spaces again.”

Auditions will be held in the summer but they are also looking for people in the community who have an interest in technical theatre, backstage work or other creative roles to join them in spreading some Christmas cheer.

More information is available on the association’s Facebook page and tickets for the show are on sale now from £14 on the OnFife site.
