After learning about general stage skills and working towards our annual examinations, Bath Theatre School puts on a production involving the whole school. Here we give students the opportunity to test their performing skills by staging a full scale musical production. This gives our students the opportunity to fully experience what it’s like putting on a full production with auditions, read-throughs, rehearsals, costumes, make up, lighting, sound and much more.
Our Production for 2015 … Joseph.
We are very pleased to announce that we will be putting on the fantastic musical production of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’.
In this retelling of the Biblical story, Joseph is a handsome young man who is his father’s favorite child, able to interpret dreams, and the bearer of an amazing coat. These facts lead Joseph’s eleven brothers to become insatiably jealous. Thus, they sell Joseph into slavery to some passing Ishmaelites. After refusing the advances of his owner’s wife, Joseph is sent to jail. Once in jail, he quickly becomes popular due to his ability to interpret dreams. The Pharaoh soon hears of Joseph’s ability and appoints him to the post of Number Two man in Egypt. Years later, Joseph’s now starving brothers arrive in Egypt and ask Joseph, whom they don’t recognize, for assistance. Joseph, in turn, gives his brothers a scare, but eventually grants them all they desire, reveals his identity, and reunites the family.
