The tour is set to open at Chelmsford Theatre on the 3rd March before travelling to 59 other venues.
A new UK touring concert has been announced to start in March, featuring reimagined versions of musical theatre songs, uniquely performed by cast
members who have starred in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
The concert sees producer Matt Brinker and performer Keith Jack collaborating to bring this performance to the stage. Talking about the news Keith Jack said: ” Joseph has been a part of my life since before Any Dream Will Do, and I’ve always thought about getting a few Joseph performers together for a concert of musical theatre. Joseph is such a well-loved show and cast members past and present have a huge personal following – so it felt very natural that they may want to see those cast members performing a selection of
the biggest hits from all different types of shows, and a few new arrangements from Joseph of course! I’m hoping this will appeal to people of all ages and maybe even introduce some of the newer musicals to audiences that haven’t heard them before.”
Meanwhile, Matt Brinkler said: ” When Keith asked me for my help on this production, and later to co- produce it with him, I was over the moon. This musical theatre concert is the perfect way to make larger musicals accessible and affordable for so many that need an introduction to theatre. It gives us an opportunity to reach further into communities that haven’t got access to number one touring venues.”
This new concert celebrates the work of legendary Broadway and West End composers and is set to feature songs from musicals such as Joseph, Jesus Christ Superstar, SIX, Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Mamma Mia, We Will Rock You, Jersey Boys, Les Misérables and Moulin Rouge.
Currently starring in the spring tour includes Keith Jack; the longest reigning Joseph Mike Holoway, who played the titular role at age 19 before appearing in the West End and
numerous UK tours over a 24-year period culminating in over 4000 performances. Straight from the West End Jonathan Dudley, who alternated as Joseph in the 2013 UK tour, and Chris Barton finalist on hit BBC shows Any Dream Will Do & All Together Now. Further casting will be announced soon.
