College hunts for colourful coat wearer

The search is on for someone to play the lead role of Joseph on a West End stage for one night only.

Havering College of Further and Higher Education, in Essex, is inviting male performers to audition for its one-off production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Haymarket, London, in April.

Director Peter Dayson, who lectures in music at the college, said: “I am looking for male singers aged from 16 to 23 who can act and dance.
“I have the amazing coat of many colours waiting for the right Joseph. I also need his brothers and an Elvis impersonator to play Pharaoh. There are some female parts for characters such as Mrs Potiphar.”

Auditions are currently taking place with rehearsals due to get underway next month.

Potential cast members should be available to attend rehearsals at the college’s Ardleigh Green Campus every Wednesday from 4.30pm to 6pm.
