Even though the sunflowers haven’t even wilted yet from their production of Calendar Girls, TAODS are already working on their next production at the Todmorden Hippodrome.

The dazzling, family favourite Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat will be presented by their Youth Section, The Todmorden Hippodrome Youth Theatre.

The production will feature a cast of almost 100 young people from the Upper Calder Valley aged between eight and 18 and runs at the Hippodrome from Tuesday, December 4 to December 8.

“The Hippodrome Youth Theatre has built a long tradition of offering great family shows at Christmas and this production will be a fantastic treat,” said Helen Clarkson, musical director and chairman of the youth theatre. “We’re one of the first groups in the UK to be granted permission to present the complete West End version of the show”
