TALENTED children are making the most of their new school hall with a sensational 100-strong production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Youngsters at the The Victory Primary – the amalgamation of Westfield Juniors and Saxon Shore Infants which moved into its new premises in Allaway Avenue in Paulsgrove – have been rehearsing hard for their premiere tonight.

Joshua Toop, 11, who plays Joseph, said: ‘I really enjoy singing and acting and would like to become a film actor when I’m older.

‘I’m looking forward to performing to a live audience on stage.’

James Munt, deputy head and producer of the show, said: ‘All the children in our school have a talent and skill and we’re lucky to have found that talent in all our Joseph performers and have given them the opportunity to showcase it.

‘All the children should be praised for their hard work and practice and are a credit to themselves.’

He added: ‘The facilities and equipment that our new building offers has been used to breathtaking effect and are more reminiscent of a West End show than a primary school’s performance!’

The performances tonight and tomorrow start at 6.30pm. Tickets costing £4 (£2 for children under 15) can be bought at the door.
