Speaking about taking on the role of Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, Griff Rhys Jones said: “I’m delighted to be getting to play my hero, Scrooge. I have based a lot of my current life choices on him. Dickens made a huge impact on our whole idea of Christmas with his little book, “A Christmas Carol”. It has justly been a favourite ever since and this is a brilliant and moving musical version. I am working alongside a talented and enthusiastic group of performers and musicians who make up the London Musical Theatre Orchestra. I’m very much looking forward to going on that uplifting journey that Scrooge takes on that fateful Christmas Eve and hope people will enjoy the concert as much as we will enjoy performing it.”
The performance of A Christmas Carol by London Musical Theatre Orchestra at 7.30pm on Monday 10th December will be in aide of The King’s College Hospital Trust Haematology Campaign to mark the launch of a major fund-raising campaign to build a new Haematology Centre for research and clinical treatment at King’s College, London.
