The pair will be joined by Jac Yarrow playing the rainbow-clad Joseph. Yarrow makes his professional stage debut in the lead role joining the long tradition of casting young newcomers in the role.

The team behind the award-winning London Palladium pantomimes Dick Whittington and Snow White are bringing Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat back to the London Palladium.
This colourful musical tells the story of Joseph who is gifted with a multi-coloured coat as a mark of his father’s favour. His many brothers are not impressed by Joseph’s coat or his prophetic dreams, and scheme to get rid of Joseph. Featuring songs across multiple musical styles Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat features songs like Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door, and Go, Go, Go, Joseph.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat marks the first time that a musical collaboration between the dynamic team of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice was performed publically. It was originally conceived of and presented as a 15-minute long piece for a London School and the next year released as a concept album.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, has long been a favourite of touring companies and school theatre groups. In 1999 Steven Pimlott's 1991 London Palladium production of the musical was turned into a film starring Donny Osmond and featuring Joan Collins
The show was last seen in residence in the West End nearly a decade ago when the London Palladium production was restaged at the Adelphi Theatre with the Lee Mead playing the title role after being voted into the role by the public during BBC One’s Any Dream Will Do.
Besides always being among the most sought-after tickets for audiences, productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat have a long history of wowing critics. Over the years Joseph has garnered 6 Tony nominations and 7 Olivier Award nominations, including one win for Best Set Designer.
