After losing out to Lee Mead in the final of BBC reality talent show Any Dream Will Do, runner-up Keith Jack feared he had missed his opportunity to perform as Joseph in the hit musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Highly praised during the series for this superb singing voice and vocal range, Keith finally gets the chance play the leading role and wear the iconic technicolour dreamcoat in the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat national tour. The Kaje caught up with Keith to find out more…

for the initial national tour over you? Not at all, I was very happy with how I had done with the show and was looking forward to the future and new opportunities to perform. How much competition was there between you and the other contestants? It was competitive as it was a shared dream and we all really wanted to win of course! But we were friends throughout the show and remain friends today – which is great. How does it feel to finally wear the coat?

It has been three years since Any Dream Will Do, had you given up hope of ever wearing Fantastic, but you would be amazed by ow hot it when the Technicolor Dreamcoat? you actually put it on! Yes, I had really! You are actually taking over the role from one of your fellow competitors, Craig Chalmers. Were you dissapointed when he was chosen

“I was very happy with how I had done with the show and was looking forward to the future and new opportunities to perform.” What are you most looking forward to from the challenge? I am just excited that I am now getting the chance to play the part that I wanted to play in the first place. You went from shelf stacker to celebrity over night, how did the find the initial adjustment? It all went a little bit craxy, but I coped. Since Any Dream Will Do, what have you been upto other than the initial Joseph tour (as the narrator)?
