Keith Jack will be playing Joseph in Bill Kenwright’s production of Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat for UK 2010 Tour.
Keith Jack was one of the most popular finalists in the hit BBC series Any Dream Will Do. Watched by millions every Saturday night, the show was produced to find a leading man for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new West End production, and Keith, chosen from tens of thousands of wannabees, charmed audiences week after week with his vocal talents, finally coming in a close second. He went on to play the Narrator in the UK tour of Joseph and now returns for the 2010 tour in the lead role.
Keith has appeared as Aladdin in Aladdin at the King’s Theatre Glasgow, the title role in Peter Pan at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen. Keith created the lead role of Charlie in the new musical Only the Brave, which premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Concerts include: Performing in front of her Majesty the Queen and the Spanish Royal Family at the ‘Parliament Picnic’, Choices for Life 2008 & 2009 playing to over 100,000 people and 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. Most recently he has been in New York recording the soundtrack for a film called ‘The Dreams of Kings’ which will be entered at the New York Film Festival
Having enjoyed sensational reviews, Bill Kenwright’s ‘AMAZING’, ‘SUPERB’, ‘WONDERFUL’ and ‘BRILLIANT’ production of TIM RICE and ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER’s sparkling family musical continues to enjoy huge success across the country with standing ovations at every performance.
This colourful retelling of the biblical story about Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours sings out to young and old alike with a score which is wall to wall hits – including Close Every Door and Any Dream Will Do.
Bill Kenwright, one of the most successful and prolific producers in British theatre today, (whose current hit West End shows include the musicals Blood Brothers and Cabaret and acclaimed drama The Letter), was on the expert panel of judges alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber, Denise Van Outen and John Barrowman and is delighted that Keith is taking on the leading role.
