Olivier-nominated West End actor David Burt returns to star again as Scrooge as award-winning theatre company Antic Disposition celebrates its 10th anniversary year with its production of A Christmas Carol in London’s historic Middle Temple Hall.

David Hunter – last seen in the West End starring in the multi award-winning musical Once – is to play Ebenezer Scrooge’s downtrodden employee, Bob Cratchit.

Seen by more than 5,000 people, and now established as one of London’s most magical festive treats, A Christmas Carol is performed in the highly atmospheric 16th-century Middle Temple Hall, a location well known to Dickens himself, who studied law at the ancient institution.

David Hunter first rose to fame as a finalist on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ITV casting programme, Superstar, as he competed to play the lead in Jesus Christ Superstar.

He performed in front of millions, reaching the semi finals and receiving high praise throughout for his honest, dramatic performances.

His West End credits include One Man, Two Guvnors (Adelphi & National Theatre), Tommy (Prince Edward) and Seussical (Arts). He also had the lead role in The Hired Man (Leicester Curve and Colchester Mercury).

David Burt is one of the West End’s most respected and in-demand leading men. He has appeared in dozens of notable West End productions, including playing Enjolras in the original cast of Les Misérables, Magaldi in the original cast of Evita, Pontius Pilate in Jesus Christ Superstar and Count Fosco in The Woman in White.


David’s other credits include Cats, Chess, The Far Pavilions, Closer to Heaven, Taboo and Kiss Me, Kate, as well as seasons at the National Theatre and RSC.

The rest of the cast are: David Anthony, Chris Courtenay, Alex Hooper, Victoria Hope, Kerry Loosemore, Katie Lovell, Dean Riley, Andrea Sadler, and child actors Harley Gallacher, Leo Mann, Miles Roughley and Archie Stevens.

A Christmas Carol will play at Middle Temple Hall between December 22-30.
