Nothing amateur about a truly amazing Joseph
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat: Waterfront Hall, belfast
JOSEPH and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has been performed in theatres across the globe.
It's hard to go wrong with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, but I was not prepared for the high standard of performances I witnessed last night.
Ravara Productions youth-run amateur dramatic group are an exceptional lot. From the orchestra to the narrators, the brothers, wives and ensemble, the attention paid to every little detail was remarkable.
The young actor playing Joseph gave a confident performance and the narrators showed vocal maturity well beyond their tender years.
I was looking for a weak link, but there wasn't one; every young person remained in the moment for the duration.
It was very evident a huge amount of effort has gone into crafting this very slick show, with Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door, Potiphar and Those Canaan Days particular highlights.
If you can get a ticket for the remaining shows, I would highly recommend it.
