Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (2013)
The first School Musical in the new Theatre took place in March 2013 and was a tremendous success. Near sell out audiences (despite the poor weather conditions) clearly enjoyed the production in the new Theatre with its tiered seating creating a professional and 'intimate' atmosphere for both audience and performers alike. Following extensive rehearsals, (two and a half hours every week and extra Saturday's) the fifty strong cast sang their way through the story of Joseph for six faultless performances which included a primary school matinee and the school's first ever Saturday matinee show.
Even a large covering of snow that fell during Friday evening could not stop the production. On Saturday morning the car park was covered with a great deal of snow but thanks to the three hour effort of staff and senior cast members involved in 'Joseph' who came in to clear the snow, both Saturday performances went ahead. As the saying goes, the show must (and did) go on.
