THE JIGSAW Players Theatre Company received a well-earned standing ovation after its youth production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.

The show, arguably the nation’s favourite musical, was fantastic throughout and delighted the crowd at the Droitwich Spa High School theatre.

There was a lively colourful start, as you would expect with this production, as the song ‘Joseph’s Coat’ set the high standard for the rest of the production.

That was one of many highlights of the first half, along with the scene with Potiphar, who was brilliantly played by Paddy Hughes and generated plenty of laughs among the audience.

The lively Go Go Go Joseph – with the chorus in vibrant 1960s dresses – was the perfect way to bring the curtain down and take us into the interval.

The second half was just as good as the first and featured a great solo by Jarrad Heath as Simeon, on Those Canaan Days.

But the pick of the performers were Luke McLinden who won the hearts of the crowd as Joseph and Phoebe Fletcher who did everything a good narrator should – she was endearing to the audience and interacted well with the other characters on stage as she told this classic Biblical story through faultless vocals and facial expressions.
