Former X Factor starlet Amelia Lily is set to join fellow finalist Lloyd Daniels in the touring production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Amelia will take on the role of Narrator, whilst Lloyd will follow in the footsteps of Jason Donovan, Donny Osmond and Lee Mead by portraying Joseph, when Bill Kenwright’s production of the popular show opens at the Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre this evening.
After coming fourth in the 2011 series of The X Factor , Amelia went on to enjoy a successful pop career which included a top 10 single (You Bring Me Joy) and support slots with Olly Murs and Girls Aloud.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which is a colourful retelling of the story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and his coat of many colours, is one of the most popular family-friendly musicals of all time.
Featuring countless sing-a-long hits including Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door and Jacob and Sons, it’s the perfect antidote to the doom and gloom February!
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat runs at the Playhouse Theatre in Edinburgh until Saturday, 21st February.
