Brian Conley will star as Ebenezer Scrooge in an exciting new staged concert version of Alan Menken (music), Lynn Ahrens (lyrics) and Mike Ockrent‘s (book) celebrated musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, which will play a strictly limited season at the Dominion Theatre in London’s West End from Monday 7 December 2020 to Saturday 2 January 2021.
The musical brings Dickens’ timeless fable to glorious life: Ebenezer Scrooge, a mean-spirited miser, does not believe in the power of Christmas. But on a Christmas Eve filled with memorable characters, 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 played by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra, an all-star cast and a touch of festive magic, A Christmas Carol at the Dominion is set to be a must-see West End production this December.
The creative team is led by director Shaun Kerrison, who helmed several previous concert productions for LMTO, and Freddie Tapner (founder of LMTO) as Musical Director. Casting is by Jim Arnold CDG.
900 free tickets will be made available to Key Workers and their families at Alpha’s La Dolce Vita Key Workers Matinee on Thursday 10th December. Further information on how to apply will be announced in the coming weeks.
Covid safety measures and social distancing will be in place front of house, on stage, backstage and throughout the Dominion Theatre. If you become unable to attend, unwell or are having to isolate, you will be able to exchange your tickets free of charge up to 24 hours before your performance.
The Producers of A Christmas Carol are working in partnership with GeneMe UK to use FRANKD testing for cast, musicians and backstage crew members. Successfully implemented this summer at the Troubadour Theatre for the stage adaptation of Sleepless, FRANKD (Fast, Reliable, Accurate, Nucleic-based Kit for Covid-19 Diagnostic Detection) will be in place throughout the entire run of A Christmas Carol. Test results will be sent directly to the phones of crew, cast and musicians via the Yoti secure app within an hour of a swab being taken.
A Christmas Carol will play a strictly limited run from 7th December 2020 to 2nd January 2021. The hit musical THE PRINCE OF EGYPT will resume its run at the Dominion Theatre in the Spring of 2021 pending UK Government advice.
