‘ANY Dream Will Do’ finalist Keith Jack, who charmed BBC audiences week after week with his vocal talents, will take the lead role in ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ in Bradford next month.
Watched by millions of viewers, the show was designed to find a leading man for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s West End production of the popular musical - and Keith, chosen from thousands of wannabees, came a close second in the final line-up. He went on to play the narrator in the UK tour of ‘Joseph’ and has returned for the 2011 tour in the lead role.
Keith has also played Aladdin at the King’s Theatre, Glasgow, and the title role in ‘Peter Pan’ at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen. He created the lead role of Charlie in the new musical ‘Only the Brave’ and sang for 100,000 people at the Choices for Life concert in 2008 and 2009 and at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s birthday concert at Hyde Park.
Keith has released two albums - his debut was called ‘This Time’ and went into the top 40. His most recent album ‘An Evening at the Musicals’ was released last year.
‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’, written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, tells the biblical story about Joseph and his 11 brothers and appeals to all ages with hit songs such as ‘Close Every Door’ and ‘Any Dream Will Do’.
The show will be at the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford, from September 20 to 25. The Echo has two pairs of family tickets (four people per ticket) to win for the opening night, Tuesday September 20, at 7.30pm.
