Magic sensation Richard Jones will guest star in the return of smash hit West End show.
Lance Corporal Richard Jones, the first ever magician to win Britain’s Got Talent, will guest star in the return of West End magic show IMPOSSIBLE at the Noël Coward Theatre from 8 July – 27 August. IMPOSSIBLE, the world’s greatest magic show, returns to London this summer, following its acclaimed West End season last year. The show features the world’s greatest illusionists including Josephine Lee, Sabine Van Diemen, Magical Bones, Jonathan Goodwin, Ben Hart and Chris Cox.
Lance Corporal Richard Jones rose to stardom in this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, where he stunned the judges and audiences alike with his captivating performances. Richard didn’t just impress the judges, he also stole the hearts of the nation. After more than 2.5million people voted in the final, Richard was crowned the winner of BGT’s 10th series.
The show’s producer Jamie Hendry said “I’m delighted to welcome Richard Jones to Impossible as we return to the Noël Coward Theatre this summer. Having watched him wow the judges and audiences on Britain’s Got Talent, I knew he’d be a wonderful addition to our show and I’m delighted to make his dreams come true by casting him in a starring role in the West End!”
Although Richard always enjoyed watching magic as a child, it wasn’t until he joined the army that he took it up, first performing in front of friends and family. After developing his act, Richard started putting on shows in front of his colleagues. Richard will now make his dreams come true by starring in the West End.
