JAC YARROW ANNOUNCED IN THE ICONIC LEAD ROLE IN JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT (21 MARCH 2019)

Today Michael Harrison and the Really Useful Group are thrilled to announce that Jac Yarrow will take the lead role in the new production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the world famous London Palladium.

Jac - who will be making his professional stage debut in the iconic role - will star alongside Jason Donovan and Sheridan Smith, who have previously been announced as Pharaoh and The Narrator respectively.

Joseph is one of stage's most sought after roles, and Jac will be following the footsteps of a line of stars who have previously played the title character, including Jason himself.

Jac created a sensation at the beginning of the year when he starred in the production of Disney's Newsies at the Arts Educational School. Jac, who is 21 and from Cardiff, took the role of Jack Kelly and gave a breath-taking performance, marking himself out as an outstanding talent in the new generation of theatre stars and creating huge excitement in anticipation of embarking upon a professional stage career

Jac commented: "I can't quite believe it. Here I am, 21 years old, still at Drama School and come June I'll be standing centre stage at the prestigious London Palladium, singing the iconic music and lyrics of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. My dream came true."

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will play a strictly limited 11-week season from Thursday 27 June (Press Night: Thursday 11 July 2019).



JASON DONOVAN RETURNS TO THE PALLADIUM IN JOSEPH AND HIS AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT (14 MARCH 2019)

Today Michael Harrison and the Really Useful Group are delighted to announce that Jason Donovan will return to the London Palladium in the new production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to star as the Pharaoh.

Jason made his defining stage performance as the title character of Joseph in the 1990s, also at the London Palladium, in a sold-out 18-month run which produced a No.1 single and best-selling soundtrack album. It remains one of the most successful revivals of all time. Jason now returns to the show as Pharaoh, who rocks 'Song of the King' in the iconic musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, soon to be re-imagined in this brand new production.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will play a strictly limited 11-week season from Thursday 27 June ((Press Night: Thursday 11 July 2019).

Jason joins Sheridan Smith, with the double Olivier Award winning actress recently announced as The Narrator. Casting for the role of Joseph is to be announced soon.

Jason commented: "You never know the measure of a moment until it becomes a memory, and what a moment that was for me. Joseph was a ground breaker in 1991, and what a blast it will be to be back on the prestigious Palladium stage and be part of it all again with a brand new cast in this re-imagined 2019 production. I'm looking forward to breathing new life into Pharaoh and I'm so relieved he doesn't wear a loin cloth!"

Jason became an international star with the role of Scott Robinson in Neighbours. The series went on to become one of the highest-rating shows in the UK, which led to Jason's association and huge success with acclaimed producers, Stock, Aitken and Waterman. His debut album Ten Good Reasons was the biggest selling album of 1989, with career sales of 13 million albums and 4 UK No.1 singles.

Following his Olivier-nominated portrayal of Joseph, he has gone on to star in The Rocky Horror Show, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Priscilla, Annie Get Your Gun, The Sound of Music, The King's Speech and Million Dollar Quartet. On television he has featured in I'm A Celebrity and Strictly Come Dancing, Who Do You Think You Are, ITV's Superstar and Piers Morgan's Life Stories.
