Britain’s Got Talent star Lucy Kay is to star in the St Helens Theatre Royal’s production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dream.

The show will also star X Factor winner Joe McElderry and comes to the Corporation Street theatre from Tuesday, February 23 to Saturday, February 27.

Lucy scored her first number one album in 2014, after her stunning debut album Fantasia shot straight to the top of the Classical Album Chart.

The singer, originally from Leicestershire, shot to fame and captured the country’s hearts as runner-up on Britain’s Got Talent in 2014.

Following her success on the show, Lucy also recorded the song Flower of Scotland with the band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Royal Navy.

Lucy was also a special guest on Andrea Bocelli’s 2014 tour.

Previously announced as Joseph, Joe McElderry was just 18 when won the sixth series of The X Factor having been mentored by Girls Aloud star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and beating off fierce competition from Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon.

Joe then soared to number one on the UK Singles Charts with his rendition of Miley Cyrus’ The Climb and his debut album Wide Awake went straight in at number three on the UK Albums 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, with a fifth in the making.

Having garnered sensational reviews and standing ovations at every performance since its inception almost 35 years ago, Bill Kenwright’s ‘amazing’, ‘superb’, ‘wonderful’ and ‘brilliant’ production of this sparkling family musical has now sold an estimated 20 million tickets.

This vibrant and exciting retelling of the biblical story about Joseph, his 11 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.

The show is presented by Bill Kenwright by special arrangement with the Really Useful Group presents with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
