London Musical Theatre Orchestra, the first professional orchestra dedicated to musical theatre, has announced its new season as it celebrates its second anniversary.
The group was founded in 2015 and has since performed public concerts of State Fair, A Christmas Carol and Honeymoon in Vegas with stars including Samantha Barks, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Emma Hatton and Celinde Schoenmaker.
The new season includes performances of Jerry Herman's Mack and Mabel at Hackney Empire on 23 September, and a reprise of A Christmas Carol at the Lyceum Theatre on 11 and 18 December.

The orchestra performed Alan Menken's A Christmas Carol at the Lyceum last Christmas with a cast that featured Robert Lindsay, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Giovanna Fletcher, Hugh Maynard and Madalena Alberto.
LMTO's next concert will be a performance of Candide at Cadogan Hall starring Rob Houchen on 21 July.
