Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat

A biblical tale from the Book of Genesis retold in glorious technicolour!
Andrew Lloyd Webber, famous for West End hits such as “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Cats”, began his career as a composer and producer of musicals with a humble 15 minute version of the story of Joseph from the Book of Genesis. It was written as a favour for a friend who was Head of Music at a school in London. The year was 1969.
Since then, it has grown to become a hugely popular musical performed on professional and school stages alike!
Joseph, as his father Jacob’s favourite child, is given a beautiful colourful coat much to the jealousy of his eleven brothers. They sell him into slavery to passing traders and pretend that he is dead to their father.
Eventually through much suffering and time in jail, Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams sees him rise to become the second most powerful position after the Pharoah of Egypt.
When Joseph’s brothers, starving from a famine come to beg for help, will this be Joseph’s chance for revenge at last? Or will he forgive them and reunite with his father?
Join us this Christmas to learn this age-old story of faith, perseverance in the face of adversity, with a bit of West-End song and dance included!
