Directed by Guy Retallack with music by Nick Fogarty, The Golden Voice is the story of fame hungry singer Mike Chariot, betrays his best friend and abandons his childhood sweetheart to win the nation’s favourite talent show. But Mike quickly realises he is merely a puppet for the record company and TV execs. Too famous to return to his old life, he decides to disappear. After a brief media frenzy the machine moves on and he is all but forgotten.
Fast forward 20 years, a wiser Mike Chariot is back to make amends and help young singers and musicians achieve their dreams without entering television talent shows. However his noble quest will bring him back in contact with his embittered former best friend Jim Ryan, who descended into a life of crime, after Chariot split up their band. But now Jim has the power to exact his revenge.
The Golden Voice stars Darren Day as Mike Chariot. Darren Day’s first major theatre role was as Joseph in the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium. Since then, other West End credits include Grease, Summer Holiday and Godspell
