In rehearsal: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - 6th to 9th May 2020

Welcome to this behind the scenes look at Green Room Productions where rehearsals for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will shortly be getting underway.

The production will, once again, be directed by John Hebden.  John is well known to our audiences having directed many of our previous productions including our last show 42nd Street.  This time John will be joined by choreographer Michelle Loader and musical director Susana Tierney. Michelle has choreographed many of Green Room's previous productions including Show Boat, Beauty and the Beast, The Producers, Summer Holiday, Aspects of Love, White Christmas. Made In Dagenham and, most recently, Betty Blue Eyes. We are delighted to welcome highly respected musical director Susana Tierney who is making her debut with Green Room working with us on Joseph. Set design is, once again, by Alastair Woodgate.

Our first get together took place in December at Oakmere School. Over mulled wine, mince pies and tea/coffee we met the Artistic Team and heard about their ideas for the show, learnt about the characters and casting requirements (there are at least 32 roles to fill) and had a bit of a sing too.  We are now on a break, returning in January with the auditions on Sunday 19 January at Oakmere School.  The dates are as follows:  Wed 8th January: Music audition prep  Mon 13th January: Music audition prep Wed 15th January: Dance Workshop Sunday 19th January: AUDITIONS A Children’s Pack will be issued shortly setting out what will required of the children in the show.  In addition to the cast we will need a number of wardrobe coordinators and a team of chaperones. If you’re not planning to be in the show but want to get involved there will be various opportunities to do so.
