KING’S LYNN: Joseph role a dream for young singers
Dreams will come true for talented youngsters who are to appear in a West End musical.
Sixty children from Fairstead Community Primary School and King’s Lynn School of Dramatic Arts will be starring in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat at Lynn Corn Exchange next month.
The youngsters, who are aged between six and 11, will be supporting leading man Keith Jack during the two-week run, which starts on Tuesday, March 19.
The children, who will be split into two different choirs for alternate performances, will be on stage throughout the Bill Kenwright production of the Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber hit.
Youngsters have already started rehearsals after the drama school was approached two weeks ago by Mr Kenwright’s office.
Gary Smith, who is a music teacher at the school, said: “This is a big opportunity for the children.
“For anyone to be involved with a Bill Kenwright production is a massive feather in their cap. The children are going to be absolutely brilliant.”
There are only two songs in which the children will not play any part.
Keith Jack was the runner-up in the BBC television series Any Dream will Do.
