TIM Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns to Lowestoft's Marina Theatre later this month and tickets are selling like hot cakes.

Three years ago the musical visited the Marina for the very first time and smashed all previous box office records with over 6,000 people seeing what, at the time, was the town's first ever major touring show. The return visit at the end of this month is proving just as popular with the box office deluged with calls from those eager to book.

A spokesperson for the venue said this week: “Once again the visit of a major touring musical is proving a huge hit with the public. We would like to pass on our thanks to patrons for their patience at the box office, with 12 performances scheduled we are confident we can meet demand for seats, but with tickets selling like hot cakes we are advising those wishing to book to do so as soon as possible.”

When the show returns to the Marina on September 29 the cast will include some very well known faces from top rating television shows.

Tara Bethan, one of the favourite finalists from the hit BBC series I'd Do Anything, will be playing the coveted role of the Narrator, while alongside her will be fellow Saturday night TV favourites Craig Chalmers as Joseph and Antony Hanson as Pharaoh, who were both popular finalists in the BBC series Any Dream Will Do.

Since the first visit of Joseph the Marina has presented other top musicals including Blood Brothers, Annie and Half a Sixpence, and this year audiences can look forward to even more as West End hit Buddy -The Buddy Holly Story visits in November and, for the first time in half a century, a major professional pantomime is presented in December with Peter Pan.

Retelling the biblical story of Joseph, his 11 brothers and the coat of many colours, this magical musical is full of unforgettable songs including Any Dream Will Do, Close Ev'ry Door to Me and One More Angel. Joseph bursts on to the stage at the Marina Theatre for just one week from September 29.
