Any Dream will do for Headway Jersey
The islands Brain injury charity “Headway Jersey” is to be supported by “TimpanAli Productions” production of Joseph & his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The world famous Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical opens next week at the Jersey Opera House for a limited run.
As well as raising awareness for the charity, which is celebrating its 20th year of service, there will be a collection taken after every performance. This money will be used to help fund some of the essential services provided by Headway now with over 140 registered members.
Ray Cooper, the CEO of Headway Jersey, is delighted by the support being shown as he explains:
“We are so lucky in Jersey to have support from all aspects of island life; theatre is a wonderful way to bring people together of all ages, race and backgrounds. Which is fitting as a brain injury can also affect anyone but it is by coming together that makes the world a better place.
On behalf of everyone at Headway Jersey we wish the company all the best for a successful run and our huge thanks for their support.
There is another Headway Jersey connection with this production with outgoing Fundraising and Communications manager Kevin Pamplin return to the Jersey Opera House one last time but with his daughter Beatrice joining him on stage.
Kevin is playing the Pharaoh which is already giving some of the Headway members a giggle…
We have had a bit of a laugh at the Headway centre when everyone found out I was playing the Elvis Presley obsessed character. The members are not shy in coming forward especially when giving me advice on my Elvis hip action! But in all seriousness it’s going to be a great show, I am so proud to represent this amazing charity and its equally amazing members. I hope we raise as much money as possible with the wonderful support from the jersey people once again!
The production directed by professional West End director Grant Murphy opens on Tuesday 24th October, with a signed performance on Friday at 5pm. The cast also features two sets of local children alternating performances until the show finishes on Saturday 28th October.
