Griff Rhys Jones Will Lead London Musical Theatre Orchestra's A CHRISTMAS CAROL Concert

Griff Rhys Jones Will Lead London Musical Theatre Orchestra's A CHRISTMAS CAROL Concert

London Musical Theatre Orchestra will soon present a festive favourite- A Christmas Carol at the Lyceum Theatre. The concerts follow London Musical Theatre Orchestra and Hackney Empire's presentation of Martin Smith's King at Hackney Empire.

According to the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, the production will be led by Griff Rhys Jones as Scrooge. Additional casting has not yet been announced.

Griff Rhys Jones is a two-time Olivier award-winning actor, writer, presenter and comedian. On stage, he has appeared as Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh's Oliver! (West End), the title role in Charley's Aunt (West End) and in Feydeau's An Absolute Turkey (The Globe). In a long-lasting comedy partnership with Mel Smith, his television credits include Not the Nine O'Clock News (BBC), Alas Smith and Jones (BBC), The World According to Smith and Jones (ITV), Smith and Jones in Small Doses (BBC) and Smith and Jones (BBC).

Following on the five-star sell-out successes in 2016 and 2017, the London Musical Theatre Orchestra returns to the Lyceum Theatre with their spectacular concert production of A Christmas Carol, for what is now a firm London Christmas tradition.

Charles Dickens' classic tale 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 joyous tale of the redemptive power of Christmas 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 an all-star cast soon to be announced, and the 32-piece London Musical Theatre Orchestra in full festive swing, this is the perfect start to the Christmas season.
