X Factor finalist Rachel Adediji in religious musical

An X Factor finalist is part of the cast of Jesus Christ Superstar which is heading into the region as part of a national tour.

Rachel Adediji plays the role of Mary Magdalene in the musical which hits Nottingham’s Theatre Royal next week. She comes direct from the UK and European tour of Thriller Live.

Rachel first came to the public’s attention when she reached the live stages of the X Factor in 2009, the year in which Joe McElderry was crowned champion.

Glenn Carter reprises his role as Jesus in the musical which will be staged from June 30 to July 4 in Nottingham.
