News   Tommy Steele to Reprise Title Role in Scrooge at the London Palladium
 
Veteran entertainer Tommy Steele, who has headlined more performances at the London Palladium than any other performer in its history, will return there, reprising the title role in Leslie Bricusse's musical adaptation of Scrooge that he last played at the same address for a Christmas season in 2005.

He will begin performances Oct. 24, for a run through Jan. 5, 2012.

Scrooge replaces The Wizard of Oz, which runs through Sept. 2 only.

Scrooge, which features book, music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and is based on Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," is directed by Bob Tomson, designed by Paul Farnsworth, and features illusions by Paul Kieve (Matilda, Ghost). Other creative credits include choreography by Lisa Kent, musical direction by Stuart Pedlar, lighting by Nick Richings and sound by Ben Harrison. It is produced by Bill Kenwright.

Steele's previous Palladium successes include an 894-performance run in the original 1980s stage version of Singin' in the Rain.
