December may usually be the time of year for nativity plays, but pupils, parents and staff at Hammond School were treated to a different production as the school staged a performance Joseph and his Amazing Technicoloured Dreamcoat last week.
The ever-popular Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical was a major production for staff as well as pupils, with all the Year Six teachers being involved with rehearsing lines, making headdresses and scenery.
The Year Five teachers were involved with dances, costumes and scenery and Miss Mankelow from Year Four sorted costumes for the main characters. Viv Barber was in charge of the musical side of things.
“It was absolutely wonderful,” said Hammond head of school Kay Dunn.
“The lower school children got to see dress rehearsals where the performance could be perfected, as did some of the children from our partner school at Lightwater, so by the time the children were ready for the evening performances for parents and families, the production was running really well. The Year Five and Six choir sounded wonderful, Mrs Barber did a great job with the music and in particular the children who took solo roles performed superbly.”
“We may not have had the usual Christmas production at Hammond but the whole school really enjoyed being part of staging Joseph,” added Mrs Dunn. “They put on a great show, the feedback we’ve had has been wonderful, and it’s really given us all a feel-good factor at the end of term, to send everyone off to enjoy Christmas with a spring in their step.”
