London Musical Theatre Orchestra's A Christmas Carol at Lyceum Theatre on 11th and 18th December

London Musical Theatre Orchestra brings back their  production of the spectacular concert version of A Christmas Carol, which returns by overwhelming popular demand to the Lyceum Theatre in London after a five-star sell-out performance last year, with two performances of the festive favourite at 7.30pm on 11th and 18th December. Tickets are on sale now.

The cast includes Olivier Award nominee Sophie-Louise Dann (Lend Me A Tenor / Made In Dagenham / Bend It Like Beckham The Musical / The Girls) as Mrs Fezziwig, Glenn Carter (Jersey Boys / Jesus Christ Superstar) as Marley, Nicholas Colicos (Kiss Me Kate / Mamma Mia! / The Producers) as Mr Fezziwig, Rebecca Lock (Mary Poppins / Mamma Mia!) as Mrs Cratchit and new-comer Cameron Potts as Fred Anderson / Young Scrooge.

Alongside these cast members, multi award-winning stage and screen actor Robert Lindsay (Citizen Smith / My Family / Wimbledon / Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) returns to the role of Ebenezer Scrooge. Robert will be joined by Lucie Jones (2017 UK Eurovision entrant / Les Misérables / We Will Rock You) as Emily / the Ghost of Christmas Future, Hugh Maynard (The Lion King / Miss Saigon) as the Ghost of Christmas Present, Gemma Sutton (Gypsy / The Go-Between) as the Ghost of Christmas Past and Olivier-nominee Michael Xavier (Prince of Broadway / Into The Woods / Sunset Boulevard) as Bob Cratchit.

The concert includes the LMTO Chorus comprising of: Paul Bradshaw, Christopher Cameron, Lucy Carne, Elissa Churchill, Beth Clarence, Rhiannon Doyle, David Fearn, Owen Gardiner, Austin Garrett, Barry Keenan, Laura Messin, Terri O’Ryan, Rebecca Ridout, Tim Southgate, Charlotte Vaughan and David Zachary. 

Charles Dickens’ classic novel gets the full Broadway treatment by the award-winning team of Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast / The Little Mermaid / Aladdin), Lynn Ahrens (Anastasia / Ragtime / Seussical) and Mike Ockrent (Crazy For You / Me and My Girl). This joyous musical extravaganza ran every Christmas for ten years at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where The New York Times called it “a tonic for adults, and for children a transfixing journey”.

The London Musical Theatre Orchestra is conducted by founder Freddie Tapner, who said: “We’re delighted to announce our full cast today. I’m particularly excited that real life husband and wife, Nicholas Colicos and Sophie-Louise Dann, will play Dickens’ famous married couple, Mr and Mrs Fezziwig. In total, there will be a company of over 60 performing this gorgeous Alan Menken score on the Lyceum Theatre stage. I can’t wait for our audience to hear the show - just three weeks to go!”
