A Suffolk high school’s production of a popular musical has been played out in front of packed audiences over four performances.
Stradbroke High School pupils performed Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
In a production involving a fifth of the school, more than 500 people saw the pupils’s polished and mature performances which enhanced the story including those by several senior members of the school with Jessica Rutherford and Courtney Chilvers as narrators, Marty Gionis as Pharaoh and Joseph Most as Joseph.
The diminutive Mr Potipher was portrayed by Joshua Watson and his ebullient wife cast as Alice Gooch.
Younger members of the cast performed vocal solos, with those of note performed by Noah Most, Alexander Stephenson and Lily Cossey. Year seven pupil Charlotte Watson also took to the stage to perform Those Canaan Days.

“The cast, crew and musicians, involving 20% of the school, have all developed a strong sense of camaraderie and worked tirelessly to make it a very special production.
“I have been so impressed with their level of commitment, focus and their professionalism throughout.
“In total we have performed four times – two matinee performances to our feeder primary schools and two evening performances – and after such an intense week of outstanding musical theatre the cast thoroughly deserve the standing ovations they received from the audiences on both nights.”
