"Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat" - 2015

'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ certainly showcased the musical, acting, artistic and business talents of this year’s Manor House Transition Year students. Every student played an extremely important role in the final production; be it Art, Chorus/Choir, Dancers, Enterprise or Leads. The students must be commended for their participation and enthusiasm during the entire process.

Auditions took place in August and rehearsals every Thursday from September until late November 2015. The show itself was performed to a sold-out audience for three nights, from 1-3 December 2015. Special thanks must go to the management and staff of Manor House for their support of the Musical. We were also very lucky to receive some fantastic sponsorship from the wider Raheny community.

A very special thanks must also go to our choreographer and producer Aisling Toher, whose expertise and advice greatly benefited the girls throughout. Congratulations 4th Years, it was an amazing production!
