One More Success for TimpanAli

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

TimpanAli Productions

Jersey Opera House 24th – 28th October 2017

I’m never happier than when I’m five rows back from the stage and about to lose myself in the musical theatre for a couple of hours.FullSizeRender 32.jpg

We have a huge amount of budding theatrical talent on our small island of Jersey and many of them were on stage last night.  And, in the very capable hands of Musical Director, Tim Evans, who is no stranger to the Opera House’s orchestra pit, you just knew you were in for a thrilling ride.

In 2010 Tim Evans formed TimpanAli Productions with a Jersey producer, Alastair Walkinshaw and, since that time they have successfully produced many memorable performances locally including  Jesus Christ Superstar and Oh What A Lovely War.  In 2016 TimpanAli Productions were approached by Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group to produce the London Palladium’s version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  It can’t get much better than that.

 

With music by Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, Joseph was the first of their many musical theatre collaborations to be publically performed.  The story is taken from the Bible’s Book of Genesis about Joseph’s coat of many colors and the show must be one of the most performed pieces of musical theatre ever, but its colours will never fade.  From schools to the West End, to Broadway to the rest of the world and this week Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returned to the stage at Jersey’s Opera House.

It’s almost impossible to highlight individual performances as it very much felt like a 100% team effort.  The enthusiasm on stage was fuelled by the energy surging out from the orchestra pit below … I thought the London Philharmonic Orchestra was down there and there were only 11 of them.  The children in the chorus, together with the predominately very young cast, fed off the performances by some of the more experienced members of the cast.

Pippa Adams of Jersey’s DRAMA LAB as Narrator, who during her career has appeared in many touring productions as well as in the West End and Kevin Pamplin as Pharoah who after training at the Mountview Acadamy enjoyed success as both a performer and director before returning to the island where he is currently a presenter for BBC Radio Jersey.

Joseph at the Opera House Jersey, October 2017 … a class act guys.  Loved it.

If you haven’t seen it and you love the musical theatre, you need to get yourself down to the Opera House … there are only 4 performances left.

The good news is that TimpanAli Productions will be back from 1st – 4th November 2018 with Sunset Boulevard.  So you better put those dates in your diary.  I have.
