The critically acclaimed concert production of Alan Menken’s A Christmas Carol (1994), with the London Musical Theatre Orchestra (LMTO), is back on the West End for the fourth year. A soaring Broadway score, the fantastic sounds of a 24-piece LMTO, and a brilliant all-star cast: A Christmas Carol is perfect family entertainment for the holiday season.
Dickens’ classic festive tale has a brilliant cast this year, starring actor and comedian Brian Conley (9 to 5: The Musical) as Ebenezer Scrooge, who leads an ensemble cast of over fifty, including Jacqueline Jossa (EastEnders), Busted’s Matt Willis, Lucie Jones (Waitress) and Sandra Marvin (Waitress, Hairspray).
The creative team could not be more glittering, either. Music is by Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast), with lyrics by Lynne Ahrens (Ragtime, Anastasia), and a book by Mike Ockrent (Crazy For You). Fresh from directing LMTO’s Candide, Shaun Kerrison directs, with musical staging by Tim Jackson. Sound design is by Nick Lidster for Autograph, design is by Dora Schweitzer, lighting design is by Mike Robertson, and projection design is by George Reeve.
In line with the latest government guidelines, the Dominion Theatre is partnered with the Society of London Theatre’s “See it Safely” campaign. The production will be COVID secure, with measures including face masks, distanced seating, temperature checking, contactless ticketing, social distancing, cashless payment, enhanced cleaning, and sanitiser stations.
Playing in the West End 7 December 2020 to 2 January 2021 at the Dominion Theatre.
