Casting news

JASON Donovan and Jac Yarrow will reprise their roles in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which returns to the London Palladium (July 2 to September 6, 2020) following its success earlier this year.

Jason Donovan will return in the role of Pharaoh. It was in the 1990s that Donovan made his defining stage performance as Joseph in a sold-out 18-month run which produced a No.1 single and best-selling soundtrack album. As Pharaoh in 2020, he ‘raised the roof of the London Palladium’ with his Song of the King.

Jac Yarrow caused a sensation when he made his professional stage debut playing Joseph; his portrayal of Jacob’s favourite son winning him unanimous acclaim, with his rendition of Close Every Door To Me regularly stopping the show with standing ovations.

Jason Donovan commented: “Following on from the success of this year’s awesome, reimagined version of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, I’m delighted to be returning in the summer of 2020 to reprise my role as the Pharaoh.

“This year was an absolute joy. Joseph has such a special connection with its audience and it has a huge emotional connection for me. Quite simply the show is pure musical magic. To be able to lean on the past yet build something new for the role of Pharaoh is an opportunity that cannot be done just once, and for performer or audience member alike, it just doesn’t get much better than the Palladium experience.

“Joseph. Palladium Summer 2020. Bring It On!”

Jac Yarrow commented: “Playing the iconic role of Joseph at its spiritual home, The Palladium, last summer was what I thought was a once-in-a-life-time opportunity. When I was asked to step back into the Dreamcoat for a second time, I couldn’t quite believe it. I can’t wait to be back!”

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat enjoyed a completely sold out season this year. Audiences and critics were unanimous in their acclaim for the legendary musical – the first major collaboration by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber – as it returned to the London Palladium.

Further casting for 2020 will be announced at a later date.
