IT IS not every day you get an award-winning lyricist of a famous musical praise your school performance.

Lancing College’s performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat received great acclaim from none other than Sir Tim Rice, the musical’s lyricist.

Sir Tim, a former pupil, joined the cast and crew on stage after the show on Tuesday, November 15, and said: “I have never seen a better school production and for this to be in my own school made it a very special evening for me.”

Matt Smith, head of drama and the director of Joseph, said: “Joseph turned out to be everything that we had hoped for – a magnificent performance – and, of course, the very special ingredient of Sir Tim Rice.”
