Performing the role of narrator in the Alexandra Musical Society’s production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat is “a bit different” for singer Jules Molloy.

Most of the cast cannot see or interact with her “because I am telling the story to the audience”.

The only ones in the cast who can see her are the children.

“They say never work with children or animals, but this bunch of kids have been awesome,” Molloy said.

The UK-born singer’s musical theatre journey includes a childhood trip to see former children’s television presenter Phillip Schofield star as Joseph in the West End of London – “it was absolutely fabulous”.

“I think that was probably when I started getting addicted to musicals”.

Since moving to New Zealand 12 years ago the talented singer has been involved in many shows, including Mamma Mia! and Saturday Night Fever in Queenstown and The Pirates of Penzance and Nunsense in Alexandra.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat runs from this Saturday, September 28, to October 4 at the Alexandra Memorial Theatre. For details go online to www.alexandramusicalsociety.com.
