MICHAEL Harrison and the Really Useful Group have announced that Jac Yarrow will take the lead role in the new production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which runs at the London Palladium from Thursday, June 27 to Sunday, September 8, 2019.

Yarrow – who will be making his professional stage debut in the iconic role – will star alongside previously announced Jason Donovan as Pharaoh and Sheridan Smith as The Narrator.

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

Jac Yarrow created a sensation at the beginning of the year when he starred in the production of Disney’s Newsies at the Arts Educational School. Yarrow, 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.

Yarrow 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 be directed by Laurence Connor (School of Rock, Miss Saigon). He will be joined on the creative team by Choreographer JoAnn M Hunter, Morgan Large who will design the set and costumes, Lighting Designer Ben Cracknell and Sound Designer Gareth Owen.
