St Benedict's students' talent shone through in their production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, performed on 3rd to the 5th February.

The dazzling show marked a welcome return to the stage after two years of Covid restrictions and virtual performances.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat was an uplifting display of the best of St Benedict’s music, dance and acting, with its much-loved musical numbers captivating the audience.

A natural flair for story-telling shone through the whole production, as narrators Lucas Holmes and Elena Russo told the biblical story of Joseph and his jealous brothers.

Rhodri Darwent gave an outstanding performance as Joseph, and his powerful delivery of ‘Close Every Door to Me’ was particularly impressive.

The rest of the cast was also excellent, bringing to life the brothers, Potiphar (Elikem Nornoo) and the Pharoah (Theo Zachariou): their rendition of ‘Go Go Go Joseph’ exuded sheer joy and enthusiasm.

Special mention must also go to the chorus of younger pupils, from Year 7 upwards, and the band, who brought energetic vibrancy to the classic musical numbers.

No less than professional in quality, the set design and costumes provided a further dash of West End glamour.
