London Musical Theatre Orchestra have completed casting for their spectacular concert version of A Christmas Carol at the Lyceum Theatre – and it’s full to the brim of West End favourites.

New cast members announced include David Hunter (Kinky Boots) as Bob Cratchit, Cedric Neal (Motown The Musical) as The Ghost of Christmas Present, Jeremy Secomb (Les Misérables) as Marley, Caroline Sheen (Mary Poppins) as Mrs Cratchit, and Jon Tarcy (Titus Andronicus) as Fred Anderson.

They join Griff Rhys Jones as Ebenezer Scrooge, alongside Lucie Jones (the UK’s Eurovision 2017 entrant) as Emily/The Ghost of Christmas Future, Miriam-Teak Lee (Hamilton) as The Ghost of Christmas Past, Rosemary Ashe (The Phantom Of The Opera) as Mrs Fezziwig, and Nicolas Colicos (The Producers) as Mr Fezziwig.

The concert returns to The Lyceum Theatre for a third year following overwhelming popular demand on 10th and 17th December after last year’s five-star sell out performances. The performance on Monday 10 December will be in aide of The King’s College Hospital Trust Haematology Campaign.

2018 also marks celebration of the 175th anniversary of the publication of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. This concert version is adapted by Disney favourites Alan Menken, Lynn Ahrens and Mike Ockrent from the original story.

Shaun Kerrison returns to direct the hit production, with sound design by Nick Lidster and Avgoustos Psillas and lighting design by Mike Robertson.

Tickets are available via the ATG tickets website.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
