She had also appeared in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Touring Production) in which she not only appeared as one of the wives / adoring maidens, but also played Potiphar’s Wife. She went on to fulfil the same roles in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Reading Production).
Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat had also had a three week run at this theatre barely two years earlier, with Joan Heal recreating her role.
