After sold-out performances last year, London Musical Theatre Orchestra return to the Lyceum with this musical based on Charles Dickens' festive classic, with music by Menken (Aladdin), lyrics by Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime), and a book by Ahrens and Mike Ockrent.

LMTO is an orchestra dedicated to musical theatre. The group was founded in June 2015 and has gone on to play concert versions of shows including Mack and Mabel, Candide and Honeymoon in Vegas, at venues across the capital from the Palladium to Cadogan Hall.

A Christmas Carol will play the Lyceum Theatre, London on 11 and 18 December 2017.
