One of the world’s most iconic musicals goes on stage at
St Mark’s, Bath, on Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th July as ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ bursts into action.
Performing Arts students at St Mark’s, Bath, are putting the final touches to their production of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ as they prepare to take to the stage and act, dance and sing their way to stardom in this iconic show.
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colours comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable with an engaging mix of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
Having performed in the musical as a youngster, Teacher of Performing Arts and Director of the show, Bridget Lyons, is delighted that she is able to re-create the Lloyd-Webber/Rice magic that has captivated audiences globally.
“Joseph has remained popular since it was written in 1968. I appeared in it at the age of 13 (or 14? So long ago that my memory is a little hazy!), playing the role of one of the brothers. I can pretty much remember all the words, even now!”
“This year’s production follows on from our sell out 2015 show, ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ at The Rondo, Larkhall. We will be back performing in school and have another energetic and enthusiastic cast. Luca Martin, one of our year 7s, has been cast in the role of Joseph and is supported by a strong cast made up of all year groups.”
Headteacher, Mr Barnaby Ash, praised the students on their hard work and creativity:
“Our vision at St Mark’s is centred on high academic achievement whilst developing confident, independent-minded learners who have ambition and adventure. We strive to provide outstanding opportunities, such as this, that allow our students to take centre stage, build confidence and encourage an enthusiasm and passion for the performing arts. It is sure to be a dazzling show that continues to highlight our commitment to providing our students with unique and quality learning experiences.”
