Group is inundated with people wanting to audition
by Tom Martin

A LITHERLAND theatre group is looking forward to putting on a performance of ‘Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat' after being inundated with locals wanting to audition for roles.

The Champion published an appeal in October from organisers who wanted to see as many people as possible who were interested in singing, dancing and acting.

An open audition was held at the Linacre Mission Conference Centre and those behind the production cast 65 people aged between three and 80!

The large group is now busy in rehearsals with three performances of the popular play to be held next year.

Director Andy Lewis said: “It is proving to be an amazing success and members of the local community are working hard.

”It's been amazing the number of children and adults who auditioned for us and everyone is working really hard rehearsing for the show.

“It's great to see so much local talent and it's a pleasure to be involved in such a fantastic community project. There are over 65 cast members and the show will be in the Linacre Mission Theatre which holds over 700 seats.”
