A lovely youth group production for these talented youngsters.  Plenty of singing and movement for everyone and they all looked great in their many coloured Joseph tee shirts, with Joseph himself in his beautiful many coloured coat.  All the different styles of singing were handled very well with no problems with the use of recorded music.  Ben Trainor gave an excellent performance as Joseph as did all the principals - Sean Wilson as Jacob, Mikey Worman as Pharoah, Luke Light as Potiphar, Lydia Walters as Mrs Potiphar (a real siren!) and Chloe Ayres and Emily Porter as the Baker and the Butler.  Joseph's 11 brothers acted their parts well.  The Narrators had a lot of work to do and they all told this exciting Old Testament story in great style.  (I'm sure this wouldn't have been technically possible, but it would have been good if the sound equipment could have coped better with some of the very young voices).  They, together with the Adoring Girls (super dancing) and the ensemble all added so much to this performance.  Well done to all involved with putting on this lively show.
