Rehearsals are underway for a production of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Rosehill Theatre in November

Whitehaven and District Amateur Operatic Society (WADAOS) are bringing this iconic show to the town with a cast and crew full of local talent.

Joseph is being played by Jack Riley. This is Jack's first leading role with the society. He is ‘thrilled’ to be playing Joseph as it will be a reprise of a role he took on at the age of 10 years in a school production.

The Narrator is being played by Keri Farish. Keri is no stranger to musical theatre and was classically trained at The Mount View Theatre school in London.

She has successfully played numerous leading roles within other local societies.
