The chapel and LRC at NCW recently played host to a school production of the hit show Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat!
After a successful all day dress rehearsal which filled classrooms and corridors of NCW with cheerful song, students and staff unveiled their production to the rest of school, as well as parents, on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th February.
The production was jointly directed by Mrs Christie, Head of Music and Mr Painter, Musical Theatre Teacher – who also played the role of the mighty but troubled showman, the Pharoah!
Just as the traditional story goes, the NCW production portrays the narrative of Jacob’s favourite son Joseph (played superbly by Tobias) and his brothers – students Asher, Harrison, Ryley, Stanley, Eben, Daniel, Luke, Tom W, Sophia and Ilya. Joseph navigates his way through Egypt, whilst encountering many ups and downs, to what eventually becomes a happy ending.
Klara did a fantastic job of singing Narrator, and really made the show flow seamlessly. The chorus ensemble sang perfectly together, much to the delight of the audience, encouraging many to sing along.
A few members of staff also shone during the show! Mr Snowdon played both Joseph’s Father and Potiphar. Mrs Blake hung up her Science lab coat, and became Mrs Potiphar!
The entire cast were incredibly strong, and had rehearsed solidly for months. Staff and parents agreed it was a fantastic show and we are all very proud of the students and their efforts!
