When Producer/Director Bill Kenwright brings his renowned production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to a venue near you audiences will undoubtedly recognize the young man in the leading role.
25-year-old Craig Chalmers was one of the most popular finalists in the recent 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, and Craig, chosen from tens of thousands of wannabees, charmed audiences week after week with his vocal talents, finishing in the top five.
Bill Kenwright, one of the most successful and prolific producers in British theatre today, (whose current hit West End shows include the musicals Blood Brothers and Cabaret and acclaimed drama The Letter), was on the expert panel of judges alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber, Denise Van Outen and John Barrowman and is delighted that Craig is taking on the leading role.
Before Joseph, Edinburgh-born Craig was a professional vocalist and entertainer. He was part of successful boyband No Reason who enjoyed a top ten hit as well as performing at the Kings Theatre in Edinburgh and Hampden Stadium alongside Blue, McFly, Sugarbabes and Girls Aloud.
