As you may expect, everything is on hold at the moment. We are unfortunate that the lock-down occurred in the middle of our audition process before any decisions could be made. We thank and apologise to all those that have already auditioned – we hope that we can continue soon!
As things stand, we are unable to comment regarding when we can resume auditions and rehearsals. Nor do we know if Joseph will go ahead at the original or later time. We will continue to listen to government advice, and liaise with the venue and and update you as soon as we know anything.
It is also likely that we will need to postpone the AGM this year. Again, we will update our website as soon as we know more.
Please stay safe everyone, we hope to see you all again very soon!
The KMTC Commitee
Keighley Musical Theatre Company is delighted to have been granted a licence to perform an all age production of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ as an amateur group. 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 at Keighley Victoria Hall, Tuesday 20th October to Saturday 24th October 2020, for six performances.
Lyrics by Tim Rice,
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
To prepare for the show we are holding a workshop on Wednesday 4th March 2020, 7pm to 9.30pm at Keighley Victoria Hall, where our production team will give full details of the show and explain how to prepare for the auditions which will be held on the 15th and 18th March 2020. The production team is Giles Atkinson (Director), Judith Chapman (Choreographer) and John Sandland (Musical Director).
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, Narrator(s), 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 8 on the 4th March 2020.
We would recommend that you try to attend this workshop in addition to your audition, as it will be an opportunity to learn a dance and some of the audition pieces.
We are preparing for a spectacular show, worthy of our long tradition of providing the very best in musical theatre!
