When producer/director Bill Kenwright brings his renowned production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT to Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn in September, audiences will undoubtedly recognize the young man in the leading role…

KEITH JACK was one of the most popular finalists in the hit BBC series Any Dream Will Do. Watched by millions every Saturday night, the show was produced to find a leading man for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new West End production. Keith, chosen from tens of thousands of wannabees, charmed audiences week after week with his vocal talents before finally coming in a close second. He went on to play the Narrator in the UK tour of Joseph and in 2011 he took over the lead role, which he continues to play during the 2012 autumn tour

Keith appeared as The Prince in Sleeping Beauty at the King’s Theatre, Glasgow 2011 Christmas pantomime. He has also performed as Aladdin at the King's Theatre, Glasgow and the title role in Peter Pan at His Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeen.

Concerts include: performing in front of her Majesty the Queen and the Spanish Royal Family at the Parliament Picnic', Choices for Life 2008 & 2009 playing to over 100,000 people and Andrew Lloyd Webber's birthday concert at Hyde Park.

Keith has released two albums. His debut was called This Time and went into the Top 40. His most recent album An Evening at the Musicals was released last year. Most recently he has been in New York recording the soundtrack for a film called The Dreams of Kings which was entered at the New York Film Festival

Having enjoyed sensational reviews, Bill Kenwright’s ‘AMAZING’, ‘SUPERB’, ‘WONDERFUL’ and ‘BRILLIANT’ production of TIM RICE and ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER’s sparkling family musical continues to enjoy huge success across the country with standing ovations at every performance.

This colourful 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.
