Any dream will do….

9 11 2008

We bought tickets six months ago to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, captioned by Stagetext. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was really looking forward to it as I had watched Lee Mead win the TV show, Any Dream Will Do. This was a full-blown musical with wall to wall songs. The singing was good and the costumes colourful enough to put your eyes out. It was a great musical for the whole family and we all enjoyed it. The captioning, as usual, was spot on.

My friend Jeanette made an interesting comment. She has seen this show twice previously, with a sign language interpreter. She said she got so much more out of the captioned show, as she’d had to keep looking at the interpreter who was too far from the stage, making her miss bits of the show every time she looked at the interpreter. With captions, she didn’t miss as much and got much more enjoyment out of it.
