The production will showcase the best young musical theatre performers around, all under the age of 20, and will also feature a cast of over 200 children from all over Sydney – that’s a lot of youth power!

Packemin Youth has been established to give young performers the opportunity to shine in a professional setting and show off the brilliant young talent Sydney can call its own.

Starring a Wiggle himself, Sam Moran, as Jacob, The Voice Kids finalist Harmony Lovegrove as The Narrator, and introducing Imraan Daniels in the role of Joseph, the show will have all the energy of youth and plenty of fresh talent.

The production will be directed by Neil Gooding and Jordan Vassallo, with musical direction by Peter Hayward.

This is a crowd favourite show doing its best to celebrate our next generation of performers  who wouldn’t want to check that out?

It’ll be red, yellow, green, brow, scarlet, black, ochre…

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will run at the Concourse in Chatswood from January 9 – 24. Tickets from $35. For bookings and more information, visit
