In celebration of the show's 50th anniversary, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will play at the London Palladium in summer 2019. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's deliciously colourful musical was last seen in the West End in 2007. This latest production boasts an entirely new cast and creative team, and runs for a strictly limited season from 27 June 2019.

The musical is based on the biblical tale of Joseph, son of Jacob, who is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers after he receives the gift of a splendid coat from his father. The story began as a concept album in 1969 before receiving its professional debut at the Edinburgh International Festival in 1972. The show has been translated into a film, toured extensively and sparked a reality television series to find the next Joseph for the stage, all the while clocking up myriad awards. Not many people would fail to recognise the show’s most famous songs, such as “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door to Me”.

The lead role of Joseph is played by Jac Yarrow, marking his professional stage debut. Yarrow recently performed in the Arts Educational School production of Disney's Newsies.

Musical icon Jason Donovan plays the part of Pharoah, 28 years after having starred as Joseph. The Australian singer and actor shot to fame on soap Neighbours, going on to carve out a music career which enjoyed four UK number one singles. Priscilla Queen of the Desert at the Palace Theatre and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium.

Legend of stage Sheridan Smith plays the part of Narrator. Queen of the sitcoms, Smith became a household name thanks to her role in The Royle Family and Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps. Her extensive stage credits include starring roles in Hedda Gabler at the Old Vic and Funny Girl at the Menier Chocolate Factory and Savoy Theatre.

Many a household name has donned the multi-coloured coat to play the starring role, including Jason Donovan, Phillip Schofield, Darren Day and Gareth Gates.

The show is produced by Michael Harrison Entertainment, with direction is by Laurence Connor. Choreography comes from JoAnn M. Hunter, while the show's design is by Morgan Large.

Andrew Lloyd Webber is surely the most famous living composer. Among the 13 musicals he has composed are The Phantom of the Opera and School of Rock, but he has also written a Latin Requiem Mass, two film scores and more besides. He is the recipient of a plethora of prestigious awards and has been granted a knighthood.

Tim Rice is one of the most celebrated British lyricists and a frequent collaborator of Lloyd Webber’s. He too has received a knighthood and a great many awards for his work.

Catchy, vibrant and a classic through-and-through, you won’t want to miss Joseph when it runs at the London Palladium from 27 June 2019.
