As they did at the London Palladium, Alexandra Burke (The Bodyguard, The X-Factor) and Olivier nominee Linzi Hateley (Carrie, Chicago) share the role of The Narrator. Jason Donovan, who played Joseph in the original Palladium production in the 1990s, and Olivier nominee Jac Yarrow also reprise their roles as, respectively, the Pharaoh and Joseph. The role of Pharaoh is played by Bobby Windebank at venues where Donovan does not perform.
