Britain’s Got Talentfinalist, Mark McMullan, will don the Technicolor Dreamcoat in his first major musical role in Bill Kenwright’s production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s much-loved family favourite, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.


Mark McMullan joins the production for its strictly limited three-week Christmas season at Doncaster Dome, before continuing in its UK tour into 2020 going to Peterborough, Aylesbury, Wimbledon, Coventry, Bradford, Chesterfield, Sunderland and Wolverhampton.


Mark, from Northern Ireland, floored the Britain’s Got Talent judges bringing Simon Cowell and thousands of the shows viewers to tears with his emotional rendition of Les Misérables’ Bring Him Home, which was dedicated to his brother Declan. Declan suffered a tragic cardiac arrest at the age of nineteen resulting in long-term brain damage and now lives with the devastating effects of Locked-in Syndrome.


Prior to competing on Britain’s Got Talent, Mark had given up on his dream of being a singer in favour of becoming an architect, all to ensure that he could be around to support and care for his beloved brother. When he finally auditioned for the show, Declan served as a source of inspiration for Mark who dedicated the song to him. His performances earnt him a place in the semi-finals of the show.


Mark will now be donning the Technicolor coat of his dreams in this exciting role and continue to bring both joy and comfort to his brother, whilst pursuing what he loves.

“Being cast as Joseph in Bill Kenwright’s record-breaking production is absolutely amazing! I grew up performing musical theatre and it really helped me find my voice as a singer and gave me the drive to pursue my passion. Unfortunately, due to my brother’s illness, myhopes of making a career as a performer had to be put on hold – until my appearance on Britain’s Got Talent changed everything for me. Joseph is the role that I have always wanted to play and now I am thrilled to have the opportunity to do so at theatres all around the country. The Dreamcoat really is making my dreams come true!”
