Following last year’s successful performance of “Oliver!”, Bluecoat Academy’s talented young actors and actresses are working together to recreate the story of Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat.
Students have been working hard since October 2013 in preparation for their final performance in June 2014.
Joseph’s coat will be designed and created by the Year 9 Textiles team along with the help of designers from the large fashion company Paul Smith.
After interviewing some students who are a part of the performance we got very similar opinions about the musical:
“There is a very diverse range of people working in the musical”
“Students of every age are involved”
Members of the Textiles class working with designers from Paul Smith believe that working with a professional team of designers has helped broaden their knowledge of the textiles industry and led them towards the right path to pursue their dreams and ambitions.
“Working with them has given us an insight to what it’s like working on a big project in a design company”
Students who aren’t acting in the Musical think that it’s good that lots of students are given an opportunity to be a part of the show and it’s not just orientated around acting; everyone is involved in the making of it.
Students in the Aspley Lane and Wollaton Park campus are very excited for to watch the final performance in June.
