Craig Chalmers, one of the most popular Joseph’s of all times, returns by special request to don the famous coat for a Christmas Special at G-Live in Guildford from the 27 to 31 December.
Craig is absolutely delighted to be returning to the role of “Joseph” for a Christmas Special run between Boxing Day and New Years Eve in Guildford. The show was, and is a big part of his life and Craig holds a very dear place in his heart for “Joseph”.
Craig was known to millions from his success on the hugely popular BBC Saturday night series Any Dream Will Do, which searched the nation to find a Joseph to play the lead in the West End musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Craig fought off tens of thousands of hopefuls to make it into the TV final, eventually finishing up in fifth place and was subsequently offered the role of Joseph in 2007, a part he played with great success touring the UK . Since leaving the show in 2010 Craig has been kept busy with various hosting events, personal appearances, starring in Aladdin at Dunfermline, recording a new single “15 Minutes of Fame” which is about to be released, and most recently has joined up with a group of 4 other reality TV finalists to form the UK’s first celebrity pop group inspired by the songs from the worldwide TV phenomenon “Glee”. The group are just about to announce themselves officially to the UK after successfully impressing in events supporting Peter Andre, Lulu, and Scouting for Girls. The group are lined up for UK and International tours.
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 renowned musicals Blood Brothers and Dreamboats and Petticoats), was on the expert panel of judges alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber, Denise Van Outen and John Barrowman.
