Amelia Lily is set to bring more X Factor sparkle to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat when it takes to the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre stage on March 31.
Amelia is taking over the role of Narrator alongside fellow X Factor finalist Lloyd Daniels.
The singer, who was mentored by former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland, finished third in the TV show in 2011, the year Little Mix claimed the crown.
The Middlesbrough-born singer was eliminated early on in the competition, much to the shock of the viewers. She was brought back after a fellow contestant was disqualified, and was reinstated by a public vote, resulting in her nickname the “Comeback Kid”.
No stranger to the bright lights, Amelia was the support act for Girls Aloud’s farewell tour in 2013, and for Olly Murs at the INTRO Festival.
After a successful 2014 tour, Lloyd Daniels reprises his role as Joseph for 2015. Lloyd became the X Factor’s youngest contestant in 2009 and got to the final five out of 250,000 contestants to perform in front of 10 million TV viewers.
The musical also sees the return of Matt Lapinskas (‘Enders’ Anthony Moon) who will be donning his Elvis outfit once more to reprise the role of the Pharaoh.
The popular musical which retells the biblical story about Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours, has a score which is crammed wall-to-wall with hits – including Jacob and Sons, Close Every Door and Any Dream Will Do.
Joseph plays at The Waterside from March 31 to April 4.
