A Christmas Carol
Sunday 26 November 2017
Christmas - Concert
Casting has been confirmed for the LMTO's A Christmas Carol at the Lyceum Theatre on 11 and 18 December 2017.
After the sell-out five-star production last year, the London Musical Theatre Orchestra returns by popular demand to the Lyceum Theatre for two performances of their concert production: A Christmas Carol.
Now confirmed to star alongside previously announced names are: Glenn Carter (Jersey Boys, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Marley, Nicholas Colicos (Kiss Me, Kate, The Producers) as Mr Fezziwig, Olivier Award nominee Sophie-Louise Dann (Bend It Like Beckham, The Girls) as Mrs Fezziwig, Rebecca Lock (Mary Poppins, Mamma Mia!) as Mrs Cratchit and newcomer Cameron Potts as Fred Anderson/Young Scrooge.
The show stars multi award-winning actor Robert Lindsay (Citizen Smith, My Family, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Oliver!) as Ebenezer Scrooge.
Charles Dickens' classic gets the full Broadway treatment by the award-winning team of Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin), Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical) and Mike Ockrent (Crazy For You, Me and My Girl).
This musical extravaganza ran 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".
With direction by Shaun Kerrison (Mack and Mabel, Candide, Honeymoon in Vegas) and the London Musical Theatre Orchestra conducted by Freddie Tapner in full festive swing, this is the perfect start to the Christmas season.
LMTO Founder Freddie Tapner said:
"We're delighted to announce our full cast.
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!"
