Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
20th September 2017
Over the past three years, Castlepollard Community College has grown as a hub of Music and Drama. Within the classrooms, students are active in their engagement with these subjects, however the college has built up a catalogue of amazing showcases in that time also. Three years ago, the journey started with a fantastic maiden production of Voulez Vous which saw many of our now award-winning actors and musicians making their first foray into the performance arts. An even bigger and then more experienced cast took the boards in the Mullingar Arts Centre to wow audiences over the course of two nights with their production of Oklahoma.
Last year, taking a step back from the musical arena, a talented group of Transition Year students once again displayed their talents on the Mullingar Arts Centre stage with a powerful, yet haunting production of John B. Keane's classic, Big Maggie. The cast and crew involved in this production were awarded on a national with a Best Newcomer Award as part of the Briery Gap Drama Competition.
Under the tutelage of Director and Music teacher, Joan Leonard, a huge cast of new and experienced performers are currently preparing for the college's next production, Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic, Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat. The show promises to be the college's most impressive yet. The production will take place once again in the Mullingar Arts Centre on 16th, 17th and 18th of November.
