Students featuring in the 'Joseph' production.

Students from Our Lady of Rosary Primary (OLOR) Kellyville, Cerdon College Merrylands and St Patrick’s Primary Guildford are showcasing their talents in the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, currently showing at Parramatta Riverside Theatre.

Joseph is the first musical written by musical team Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, and is based on the biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colours.   

The musical spectacular is running until 26 February with a cast of 42 adults, 110 children and an orchestra of 15. The production features both professional performers such as Barry Crocker, and amateur cast members, with the students taking part in the children’s ensemble.

OLOR Principal John Spradbrow said the children have a great opportunity to perform in a professional setting and have a ‘real world’ experience.

"It could also be a stepping stone to other opportunities in the future and will give the children some great memories," John said.

OLOR teacher Rebecca Mann said 27 students had been selected to be part of the musical, having auditioned last year.

"It is a great opportunity for the students to develop their creativity and confidence, meet new friends and showcase their talent," Rebecca said.

Tickets are available form the Riverside Theatre Box Office by phoning 02 8839 3399.
