The pair will reprise their roles in the production when it returns to the London Palladium next year.
Michael Harrison and the Really Useful Group have confirmed that Jason Donovan and Jac Yarrow will be back at the London Palladium in 2020, reprising their roles in the new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical.
Directed by Laurence Connor, the production will see Jac Yarrow playing the role of Joseph once more, following his critically acclaimed professional stage debut in the production this summer. Meanwhile, Jason Donovan will be returning to the role of Pharaoh.
Performances will begin at the London Palladium on on Thursday 2 July 2020 and running until Sunday 6 September 2020.
Talking about the news Jac Yarrow said: “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!”
As well as being directed by Laurence Connor, the production features choreography by JoAnn M Hunter, design by Morgan Large, lighting from Ben Cracknell and sound from Gareth Owen. Further casting for the production has yet to be announced.
Originally released as a concept album in 1969, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has since gone on to become a popular family musical, featuring songs such as ‘Go Go Go Joseph’ and ‘Any Dream Will Do’.
