Smash-hit musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat will be on stage at
Buxton Opera House in June.
Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours, the magical musical is full of unforgettable songs including Those Canaan Days, Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door To Me.
Starring bestselling singer Joe McElderry as Joseph and Britain’s Got Talent star Lucy Kay as the Narrator, the current cast is stronger than ever.
Joe was just 18 when he won The X Factor in 2009 and immediately went straight to No. 1 in the UK singles charts with his debut single The Climb. He has gone on to have three top ten albums, as well as notching up two more reality TV show victories, winning ITV’s Pop Star to Opera Star and Channel 4’s The Jump.
Joe said that Joseph is one of the most popular shows that he’s been involved in. “It’s such an iconic role, everybody knows it. A lot of people have told me it was the first musical they saw as a kid. And it passes down the generations,” he said.
Bill Kenwright’s production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sparkling family musical continues on its record breaking tour having sold to date an estimated 15 million tickets.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat takes place from June 7 to 11 with both matinee and evening performances available at varying times. Tickets are priced from £32. To buy tickets call 01298 72190 or visit www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk
