Donovan will play the Pharaoh, which he performed at the London Palladium in 2019 and 2021.

The multi-award-winning show, written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, will also star Olivier Award-nominated actor Jac Yarrow as Joseph.

Linzi Hateley, star of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and Les Misérables, will play the Narrator in the new production.

The show features fan favourites such as Close Every Door, Any Dream Will Do and Go Go Go Joseph.

Donovan originally played Joseph in the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat film, which came out in 1999.
