All children in years 3 and 4 at Stonyhurst’s prep school St Mary’s Hall gave a dazzling performance of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”

With strong singing and colourful dancing throughout, there were memorable performances by George Nixon (Joseph) and William Liu (Pharaoh). 

The children gave a truly superb performance in a packed Centenaries Theatre, receiving a standing ovation from the audience at the end. 

The headmaster of St Mary’s Hall, Mr Ian Murphy, said: “This has been a very special and educationally significant experience for all of these children.

“The reality is that the average age of the children on stage was eight years old, some are still only seven, and they have all performed with such enthusiasm and great joy.

“This performance is genuine evidence of all that a team of children can achieve when their learning experiences are underpinned by ambition and high expectations, under the guidance and inspiration of passionate and committed staff.

“For us at SMH, creativity is the miraculous fusion of the uninhibited energy of a child with the talent and guidance of experience. It can be the key to unlocking hidden potential wherever it may lie.”
