About the show
Based on Charles Dickens’ novel, A Christmas Carol is the story of tight-fisted and unkind moneylender Ebenezer Scrooge who, on an eventful Christmas Eve, is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and yet to come.
The musical premiered at New York’s Paramount Theatre in December 1994, and was an annual event at Madison Square Garden until 2003. In London, this new concert version will feature an all-star cast accompanied by the excellent 24-piece London Musical Theatre Orchestra.
Television host and comedian Brian Conley stars as Scrooge, having previously appeared as the equally unpleasant Franklin Hart Jr. in 9 to 5 at the Savoy Theatre. Conley has also acted on stage in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Oliver!
A Christmas Carol features music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, who is best known for his extensive work on Disney films including Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas. Lyrics are by Lynne Ahrens (Ragtime), book by Mike Ockrent (Crazy For You) and choreography by Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers).
Whether you’re a bah humbug or a festive fanatic, A Christmas Carol at the Dominion Theatre will whisk you away with its classic tale of charity and goodwill. It opens in London for a limited 4-week season between 7 December 2020 and 2 January 2021.
