A new, staged musical concert of Alan Menken, Lyn Ahrens and Mike Ockrent’s A Christmas Carol will run from 7 December to 2 January at the Dominion Theatre, starring Brian Conley as Scrooge.
It’s a story we all know and love: Ebenezer Scrooge, mean-spirited miser, does not believe in the power of Christmas. But on a Christmas Eve filled with spectacular songs, ghostly apparitions and journeys to the past, present and future, Scrooge acknowledges his mistakes and discovers the joy of redemption. With a sparkling Broadway score, a 24-piece orchestra, an all-star cast and a touch of festive magic, A Christmas Carol at the Dominion is the season’s must-see West End production.
The staged concert will feature TV comedy legend and West End star Brian Conley (9 to 5, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Oliver!, Hairspray) as Scrooge, who will be joined on stage by an orchestra and cast of over 50.
Written by the critically acclaimed team of Alan Menken (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast), Lynn Ahrens (Anastasia, Ragtime) and Mike Ockrent (Me and My Girl, Crazy for You), the stage musical of A Christmas Carol first premiered in 1994 at New York’s Paramount Theatre. It ran for a decade at Madison Square Gardens, and was seen by over five million people, becoming a firm Christmas tradition. LMTO previously performed A Christmas Carol to sell-out audiences and five-star reviews in 2016, 2017 and 2018 at the Lyceum Theatre.
