A note from the front of the programme.
"Dear Padnell Community
Welcome to our Millennium project. It is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to be together to celebrate a truly momentous, once in a lifetime experience. We are gratefull to The Really Useful Group for allowing us to perform 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat', enabling us to share a wonderful well-known musical.
We would also like to thank the management and staff of the Kings Theatre for all their helpnd support. This venue has such a marvellous atmosphere for community events and we hope you will join us in supporting it's future.
In spite of it being a particularly busy and expensive time we have had terrific support from parents, governors and the H.S.A. As a 'one of' event, there have been unforseen circumstances and your response has been very encouraging. 'Thanks a Millennium!'.
In addition to the increasing pressures, all the staff have worked incredibly hard. However, this production would not have been possible without Maria Ackland's incredible effort, expertise, enthusiasm and contacts. We are all eternally grateful. We would also like to thank the musicians for all their time and effort.
The Bible story of Joseph gives us many messages about family life. Let's hope that, during this Millennium Time, it's spirit forgiveness and renewal can help us all. Please encourage the children by clapping and cheering as much as possible, and feel free to join in with the singing of these wonderul well-known songs. The atmosphere is electric!! So let's all make it a truly memorable Millennium occasion. "
