Avondale School wows audiences with audio-visual feast in the musical 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'

AVONDALE School, in Cooranbong, has staged an impressive production of the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Adapted from the original stage production by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, it follows the story of the Biblical character Joseph, as found in Genesis.

The school's production was co-directed by former teacher and parent Sarah Morton and music teacher Shelley Cooper, with input from other staff.

"The production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was an incredible experience for all involved," Mrs Morton said.

"The team of staff were committed to harnessing the students' enthusiasm and professionalism and produced an incredible experience for everyone in the cast. I am incredibly thankful for having the privilege to be part of their lives."

Students spent months in preparation for three performances for more than 1500 people.

Acting principal Debra Cooper was impressed.

"We are incredibly proud of not only the individual talents of our students, but their ability to work as a team to deliver polished performances that delighted audiences," Mrs Cooper said.

"It is always exciting to see students achieve their potential."

Equip Media brought a spectacular showcase of lighting and visual effects to the production.

Mrs Cooper said, for many students, performing in the musical would be a highlight of their time at school, and something they would remember for the rest of their lives.
