YOUNGSTERS were given some theatrical tips when they met the star of the show.
The group of students from Sunderland’s Barbara Priestman Academy, a school for children with special needs, were invited along to the Sunderland Empire to meet Keith Jack, who is currently performing as Joseph.
Keith shot to fame when he was runner-up in the BBC reality talent show Any Dream Will Do, which involved a search for the lead role for the hit musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
The actor went on to play the Narrator in the UK tour of the show, and in 2011 he took over the lead role.
After meeting Keith, the Wearside youngsters were taken on a tour of the theatre and took part in a workshop before enjoying an afternoon performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which is being staged at the Empire until Saturday.
