BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT’s Lucy Kay will play the Narrator in the upcoming 2016 touring production of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, starring X FACTOR winner Joe McElderry, at the King’s Theatre Glasgow from Tuesday 10 until Saturday 14 May 2016. Full cast to be announced. Full info and tour dates on www.josephthemusical.com
Lucy Kay scored her first number one album in 2014, after her stunning debut album ‘Fantasia’ shot straight to the top of the Classical Album Chart. The singer, originally from Leicestershire, shot to fame and captured the country’s hearts as runner up on Britain’s Got Talent in 2014.
Lucy studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with tuition from renowned coloratura-lyric soprano Judith Howarth. During her studies in Glasgow, Lucy appeared in scenes from several operas including Don Giovanni, The Turn of the Screw, The Magic Flute, Hansel and Gretel and Alcina.
Following her success on Britain’s Got Talent, Lucy also recorded the song ‘Flower of Scotland’ with the band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Royal Navy and was a special guest on Andrea Bocelli’s 2014 tour.
Previously announced as Joseph, Joe McElderry was just 18 when won the sixth series of ‘The X Factor’ having been mentored by Girls Aloud star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and beating off fierce competition from Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon. Joe then soared to number one on the UK Singles Charts with his rendition of Miley Cyrus’s The Climb and his debut album Wide Awake went straight in at number 3 on the UK Albums Chart. He has since gone on to have two more top ten albums, and he became the first X Factor star to release four albums, with a fifth in the making.
Having garnered sensational reviews and standing ovations at every performance since its inception almost 35 years ago, Bill Kenwright’s ‘amazing’, ‘superb’, ‘wonderful’ and ‘brilliant’ production of this sparkling family musical has now sold an estimated 20 million tickets.
This vibrant and exciting retelling of the biblical story about Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours sings out to young and old alike with a score which is crammed wall to wall with hits, including Jacob and Sons, Close Every Door and Any Dream Will Do.
