FOR one week only Jason Donovan will appear with singing sensation Alexandra Burke in Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat at the Cliffs Pavilion. Tickets are on sale now with the show opening on Monday September 26, 2022.

Burke stars as the narrator while Donovan takes the role of Pharaoh, which he previously performed at the London Palladium in 2019 and 2021.

Jac Yarrow will wear the famous 'dreamcoat', following his critically acclaimed professional stage debut in the iconic lead role.

The brand new production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's show is coming direct from two triumphant seasons at The London Palladium.

It will be at the Cliffs Pavilion in Station Road, until Saturday October 1.

Alexandra Burke now has many West End credits including the lead roles in The Bodyguard, Sister Act, Chess and Chicago.

She first rose to fame winning The X-Factor in 2008, and has since gone on to sell over 5 million records.

She’ll also make her movie debut in the film Pretty Red Dress next year.

Jason Donovan meanwhile, needs no introduction. He was originally in the show when he made his defining stage performance as the title character of Joseph in the 1990s, in a sold-out 18-month run which produced a No.1 single and best-selling soundtrack album.

Jason also raised the roof of the London Palladium during the show’s 2019 and 2021 engagements as Pharaoh, particularly with the song, Song of the King.

Jac Yarrow caused a sensation when he made his professional stage debut playing Joseph, following in the footsteps of a line of stars who have previously played the title character. His portrayal of Joseph won him unanimous acclaim and an Olivier Award nomination, with his rendition of Close Every Door To Me regularly stopping the show with standing ovations.

Producer Michael Harrison told the Echo: “After two sensational runs at The London Palladium, I am delighted to bring this joyous show to the Cliffs Pavilion, Southend next autumn as Joseph prepares to unite audiences and spread happiness across the UK.

"Our ‘dream team’ casting will enchant newcomers and longstanding fans alike; Jac Yarrow has wowed audiences and critics with his spectacular debut and attendees should be prepared for the roof to be raised when Jason Donovan steps on stage.

"Alexandra Burke is confirmed to return to her much-applauded role as narrator when we perform in Southend, having warmed the hearts of theatre-goers at the London Palladium this summer."

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is directed by Laurence Connor.

JoAnn M Hunter (who has 20 Broadway shows to her credit, including School of Rock and On A Clear Day You Can See Forever) is the show’s choreographer, set and costume design are by the award-winning Morgan Large with Ben Cracknell as Lighting Designer and Gareth Owen as Sound Designer.

Released as a concept album in 1969, the stage version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has become one of the world’s most beloved family musicals. The multi-award-winning show, which began life as a small-scale school concert, has been performed hundreds of thousands of times including multiple runs in the West End and on Broadway, international number one tours, and productions in over 80 countries as far afield as Austria and Zimbabwe and from Israel to Peru.
