Year 6 Present Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat!
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ finally came to BIS. With its family-friendly storyline, catchy songs and colourful costumes it was an ideal choice for the Year 6 production. Joseph was obviously his father’s favourite and therefore disliked by his brothers. Deciding to get rid of him, they sell him as a slave. How would Joseph survive in the far off land of Egypt? Would he ever be able to forgive his brothers? As the drama unfolded, the presence of characters like Joseph (all six of them!), his brothers, Pharaoh and Potiphar made you laugh and cry along the way.

Year 11 Prom – 12 June 2015
The Year 11 Prom took place last Friday night in the stunning location of The Thao Dien Village. The night was a celebration of the many years of work that our students have done towards their IGCSE examinations these past six weeks. Students started arriving at 6.30pm and they certainly dressed to impress. One passer-by thought Oscars night had arrived here in our very own Ho Chi Minh City as the glamour would not have been out of the place on the red carpet of Hollywood. The bespoke dresses and suits worn by the students certainly celebrated the tailoring talents of Vietnam.

This production was indeed an epic undertaking in all sense of the word. With a huge cast of 71 performers, a complicated plot, challenging dramatic themes, rousing music and complex scenery, costumes and props, we definitely had our work cut out for us! But after many months of hard work and dedication from a very talented cast and extremely supportive parents and staff we finally made it… and what a performance it was! As Mr Simon reflected, it was almost unbelievable that this production was performed so well by children between the ages of 7 and 11.
