Joseph on Tour with Craig Chalmers

JOSEPH IS COMING…AND IT’S CRAIG!

When producer/director Bill Kenwright brings his renowned production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT to theatres across the country this spring (see full tour dates below commencing 13 April through to August) audiences will undoubtedly recognize the young man in the leading role…

CRAIG CHALMERS 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 Craig, chosen from tens of thousands of wannabees, charmed audiences week after week with his vocal talents, finishing in the top five.

Before Joseph, Edinburgh born Craig was a professional vocalist and entertainer. He was part of successful boyband ‘No Reason’ who enjoyed a top ten hit as well as performing at the Kings Theatre in Edinburgh and Hampden Stadium alongside Blue, McFly, Sugarbabes and Girls Aloud.

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 Craig is taking on the leading role.

Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Directed by Bill Kenwright, Designed by Sean Cavanagh, Choreographed by Henry Metcalfe, Lighting designed by Mark Howett and Sound designed by Chris Full.
