A SPECTACULAR version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is promised by Keighley Musical Theatre Company.

The group is organising a workshop on March 4 for children and adults wishing to be in the musical when it is staged this October.

The hugely-popular family show, whose professional version was at Bradford Alhambra earlier this month, will be presented in Keighley as an 'all-age' production.

KMTC spokesman David Brett said Joseph would be worthy of the group's long tradition of providing the very best in musical theatre.

He said: "Until recently the show has only been available to schools and church groups so we consider ourselves very lucky to be able to perform this iconic show."

Mr Brett said the production team would be regulars Judith Chapman (choreographer) and John Sandland (musical director) with director Giles Atkinson.

He said: "We are of course looking for a charismatic ‘Joseph’ and a lively bunch of 11 brothers, his father Jacob, a Pharaoh (often portrayed as an Elvis type character), Potiphar and his adulterous wife, Narrators, the brothers wives and host of supporting roles.

"For principal roles, people wishing to audition should be 15 or above on the workshop date.

"We will also be including children’s young ensemble/chorus who will be involved in the action on stage and they should be a minimum age of eight on March 4."

"At the workshop our production team will give full details of the show and explain how to prepare for the auditions, which will be held on March 15 and 18."

There will be six performances from October 20-24 at Victoria Hall in Keighley. The workshop will be on Wednesday March 4 from 7pm to 9.30pm at Victoria Hall.
