Leanne Jarvis, a finalist in’s team on The Voice in 2013, has just been cast in the UK tour of Godspell in Concert after signing with leading UK talent management agency TTA in the summer. 

Leanne joins Andy Abraham (former X Factor runner up) and Jade Ewan (former sugababe) and Tom Senior (Jersey Boys) in the principal cast for the show which opens at the Hackney Empire in April and follows a one-off sell out West End gala last year.

Leanne, 26, made it to the live finals of the 2013 series, which brought her to the attention of TTA director and talent scout Warren Bacci, who invited her to sing at a charity show at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, and then promptly signed her to his agency.

Bacci says: “Leanne is a huge talent with an incredibly powerful voice and we are really pleased that we she chose to sign to TTA. I’m sure that this is just the first of many high profile roles in musical theatre for Leanne. She was born to be on a stage and we are thrilled that she has been cast in this amazing production.”

Bacci keeps his eye on TV talent shows for untapped talent that he feels he can work with.

“I am always on the look out for people with great potential to manage,” he says “I am already watching this year’s The Voice with interest.”

Leanne says: “I am so excited! I’ve always wanted to do musical theatre but it is fiercely competitive and really hard to break into.  I was delighted to be invited by Warren to sing in a charity show at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in July and after that he offered me a contract.

“I can't believe I have been cast in such a fantastic production so soon. I can't wait to start!”

Leanne is one of a number of The Voice stars who have found success in musical theatre following the show.  Her fellow 2013 contestant Jordan Lee-Davies is currently appearing in Les Misérables in the west end.
