It is a major role and perfect for Joe. The songs will really suit his voice. There's two particularly poignant songs - Close Every Door to Me, and Any Dream Will Do plus many other songs. The acting is not too complex and it doesn't matter that he is on the short side.
Joseph and the Narrator are the two main roles and carry the show, with cameo numbers from Pharoah and the brothers.

Preview of all the numbers: http://www.kenwright.com/index.php?id=642

Louise - with the touring production there are days between venues/destinations while the production team assemble the stage etc. so the cast do get slightly more time off (non-show days) than an average West End or similar production.

Thanks for info and links Jude. Bit of homework for me listening to the songs.

It seems to me that performers must really love what they do as it must be tough dealing with the demands of the scheduling.

I suspect (though have no knowledge) that they would go to different venues from last year.
I was just putting the list up so people can see what the commitment was like last year.
