Report

Author: NOEL G. RIGG

Acorn Youth Theatre is one section of Acorn Productions and this production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the first by the youth section. This production benefitted greatly by attracting a good many youngsters who already had previous experience in shows. Joseph played by Lewis Lockwood gave a very mature performance both acting and singingwise and is sure to have a great future in musical productions. The four narrators (Jennifer Chivers, Leanne Waring, Maya Fieldhouse & Nicola Watson) all sang beautifully with very clear diction in the narrations. Two other very fine performances from Jordan Barker (Pharoah/Reuben) and Jonathan Price (Jacob/Potipher) showed great promise for future productions. The stage sets were excellent and the revolving centre piece did much to speed up and enhance this production. The good direction and well organised choreography made for a fine evening's entertainment. Keep up the good work!
