Linzi Hateley is set to return to the role of the Narrator in the upcoming Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at The London Palladium this summer.
Playing the role at special performances, the star appeared in the original production alongside Jason Donovan, and was nominated for an Olivier Award.
Alexandra Burke will also play the Narrator, alongside a previously announced cast including Jac Yarrow as Joseph and Jason Donovan as The Pharaoh. Performances begin at the West End venue from Thursday 1 July.
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical turns this summer, with Hateley’s first performance on Saturday 17 July.
Michael Harrison said, “This dream just keeps getting better. It was special enough to announce Alexandra Burke recently as the Narrator, but to now have the added bonus of Linzi playing the role at special performances – and to reunite her with Jason Donovan again at the London Palladium – turns Joseph into a dream ticket. The combination of nostalgia for the original Palladium production, coupled with the excitement of our new critically acclaimed version, means we all have a summer to look forward to.”
The production is directed by Laurence Connor, with choreography by JoAnn M Hunte, set and costume design by the award-winning Morgan Large, lighting design by Ben Cracknell and sound design by Gareth Owen.
Originally released as a concept album in 1969, the stage version ofJoseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has become one of the world’s most beloved family musicals and features show-stopping numbers including “Any Dream Will Do”, “Close Every Door To Me”, “Jacob and Sons” and “Go Go Go Joseph”.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is produced by Michael Harrison.
