Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Production-March 2020

 

Just wanted to say how much my children and I enjoyed the show tonight, it certainly was an amazing show. 

I have seen this twice in the west end and can say the students were not far off being as good and to think they are only just starting out is such an achievement for you all. 

Look forward to the next one! 

Thanks again to you all and everyone that worked so hard. 

Regards

We attended the production of Joseph last night.

It was a very uplifting evening, with the musical performed with panache, amazing levels of professionalism, and a good dollop of humour, and we enjoyed it all tremendously. What goes unseen by the audience, is the massive amount of hard work by all involved beforehand, usually out of school hours.

And - there are clearly a number of stars in the making!

Could we please ask you to pass on our thanks and congratulations to all staff, students who took part, band, backstage/tech, and of course the PA. Fab job & keep up the good work.

[PS admittedly we are biased as our eldest daughter took part – but the audience’s standing ovation at the end said it all]

Please pass on my congratulations to everyone involved with Joseph

I came last night and had a really enjoyable evening – what amazing talent (staff and pupils) we have at Davenant.

I am a year 5 teacher, who was part of a group from Thomas Willingale School, who visited yesterday to watch Joseph. I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful experience, our children loved it and were really buzzing afterwards! It was a joy to see such talent and such a professional show-well done to everyone.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our congratulations to the whole cast for a wonderful performance this evening of Joseph!
We thoroughly enjoyed it and can tell that a lot of hard work has gone into the production.  The musicians were also fantastic.
We wish the cast and crew a good rest of the run.

Christmas Concerts 2019

Just a short note to say that the Christmas Concert was absolutely wonderful!

My wife an I will both admit to having tears in our eyes and lumps in our throats at various points throughout the evening.  The work that staff and students put in to prepare must have been huge but you can be assured, worth every minute.

We clearly have incredible talent at Davenant but more importantly, staff that go out of their way to encourage our children to get involved and take part whatever their ability.

Could we ask that you share an enormous THANK YOU with all staff involved in putting together a fabulous evening.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a Happy, healthy New Year

Many, many thanks

I just had to write a message I have just had the privilege of attending the concert this evening.  It was simply fantastic.

 

Well done to everyone involved, students, staff, stage crew & headteacher! The hard work well and truly showed.

 

I am helping tomorrow night with the refreshments I can’t wait to hear it again.

 

Thanks again to all
