This Christmas, a brand-new, musical staged concert of A Christmas Carol will brighten up all of our festive seasons – those past, present and yet to come!
Starring TV comedy legend and West End star Brian Conley (9 to 5, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Oliver!, Hairspray) as Scrooge, Dicken’s classic festive fable comes to life with a sparkling Broadway score, a symphonic 24 piece orchestra and an all-star West End cast.
Written by the critically acclaimed team of Alan Menken (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast), Lynn Ahrens (Anastasia, Ragtime) and Mike Ockrent (Me and My Girl, Crazy for You), the stage musical of A Christmas Carol first premiered in 1994 at New York’s Paramount Theatre. Running for a decade at Madison Square Gardens, it was seen by over 5 million people, and now it makes its way to the iconic Dominion Theatre for a limited socially distanced season.
With sensational music from London Musical Theatre Orchestra, soaring melodies, moving lyrics and the most famous of all Christmas stories, this is the 2020 event that will unite friends, families and loved ones with the magic of live entertainment.
A Christmas Carol is at the Dominion Theatre from 7 December 2020 until 2 January 2021.

News about A Christmas Carol - Staged Concert
London theatres given green light to open in December.
Theatres in London have been given official permission to open when the national lockdown ends on 2 December. The capital city will be placed in category ‘tier two’ which will enable indoor and outdoor events with enhanced social distancing and risk mitigation rules to proceed. Whilst London was in tier two prior to the most recent lockdown, the enhanced restrictions going forward will require venues to restrict their capacity to either 50 percent of normal attendee levels or 1000 spectators, whichever is lower. The tiers will be reintroduced from 2 December, and then re-evaluated from 16 December (with changes announced on 17 December) every fortnight. Whilst it’s good news for many shows in London, the first major casualty has been Birmingham Rep and Birmingham Royal Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall. Producers of the show confirmed that due to restricted capacity the show would not be economically viable. West End productions due to open in December include A Christmas Carol starring Brian Conley, Nutcracker Delights, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Six The Musical, The Comeback, Death Drop, Potted Panto, The Great Gatsby Immersive Experience, West End Musical Christmas, The Play That Goes Wrong, Mischief Movie Night, Faulty Towers – The Dining Experience, Les Miserables -The Staged Concert and Adam Kay: Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas.
Brian Conley to headline ‘A Christmas Carol’ in the West End this Christmas
Brian Conley will star as Scrooge in a musical concert version of A Christmas Carol at the Dominion Theatre this Christmas. Written by the multi-award winning team of Alan Menken (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast), Lynn Ahrens (Anastasia, Ragtime) and Mike Ockrent (Me and My Girl, Crazy for You), the 1994 stage musical of Charles Dickens classic tale will run for 41 performances from 7 December 2020. Taken on a magical journey by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, will the cold-hearted miser Scrooge change his ways before it’s too late. The socially distanced production will feature a cast of over 50 performers on stage including the 24-piece London Musical Theatre Orchestra, with additional starry cast members to be announced. Covid safety measures and social distancing will be in place front of house, on stage, backstage and throughout the barn-like Dominion Theatre. Cast, musicians and backstage crew will be tested throughout the run using the FRANKD (Fast, Reliable, Accurate, Nucleic-based Kit for Covid-19 Diagnostic Detection) system, which was successfully implemented in the recent production of Sleepless, The Musical this summer. The creative team is led by director Shaun Kerrison, with Freddie Tapner as musical director and casting by Jim Arnold. Dickens much loved tale is regular in the UK with previous productions including Jack Thorne’s adaptation at The Old Vic, Simon Callow’s adaptation, a production starring Jim Broadbent, and the forthcoming adaption by Mark Gatiss. The production will have a limited run at the Dominion Theatre over Christmas and New Year, with The Prince of Egypt then set to return. A Christmas Carol will run from 7 December until 2 January 2020 at the Dominion Theatre, London.
