Singing sensation and X Factor favourite Joe McElderry will once again wear the world’s most famous coat as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat comes to Fife later this year.

The production will be performed at the Alhambra Theatre in Dunfermline from September 19-23.

Joe’s title-role debut in the 2016 production of Joseph was his first major theatrical appearance – and his performance was met with five- star reviews and standing ovations up and down the country.

Just 18 when he won the sixth series of The X Factor, Joe was mentored by Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole, and beat off fierce competition from Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon to take first place.

He then soared to number one on the UK singles charts with his rendition of Miley Cyrus’s The Climb and his debut album Wide Awake went straight in at number three on the UK chart. He has since gone on to have two more top 10 albums, and he became the first X Factor star to release four albums.

Joe, who hails from South Shields, Tyne and Wear, is also the first and only celebrity to win three reality TV shows.

He was crowned the winner of the second series of ITV’s ‘Popstar to Operastar’ before strapping on his skis and slaloming his way to become champion of Channel 4’s celebrity ski competition ‘The Jump’ in 2014.

Having garnered sensational reviews and standing ovations at every performance since its inception over 36 years ago, Bill Kenwright’s production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s family musical has now sold an estimated 20 million tickets.

This vibrant and exciting 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.

Tickets for the show, which will be a sure-fire sell out, are on sale now from the Alhambra Theatre Box Office on 01383 740384 or online via Ticketmaster www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
