REHEARSAL AND PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT
Joseph and his 11 brothers live with their father, Jacob. Everybody knows that Joseph is the favorite son. But when Jacob gives him a beautiful, colorful coat, his brothers lose it. They sell him into slavery in a fit of jealousy. Joseph’s good heart and work ethic make him a ruler in his owner’s house, but a series of unfortunate events land him in prison. Still, Joseph stays hopeful. He is a dreamer – and God has shown him that one day he will rule over his brothers.
This revolutionary retelling of the story from the Book of Genesis has been performed over 20,000 times by schools, churches, and community theaters. It is one of the earliest collaborations between Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. With catchy tunes like “Go, Go, Go Joseph”, moving classics like “Close Every Door”, and a family friendly script that is suitable for all ages to perform, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is just as inspiring today as it was first performed in 1968. 50 years later, this beloved musical still speaks to the dreamer in all of us.
ABOUT THE REGULAR ORCHESTRATION
This 10-instrument version of the show is great for schools. It is a simplified, 90-minute version of the 1991 Palladium production. There are no dance breaks in “One More Angel in Heaven” and “Those Canaan Days.” The Megamix at the end of the show has been replaced with a series of simple reprises. There are numerous small adjustments and abridgments to the score throughout the show. None of these impacts the story.
ROCS provides both rehearsal and performance tracks for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Joseph (Megamix). Backing tracks are available for Show|Ready rehearsal software. Performance tracks are available in both Stage|Tracks and Stage|Tracks Mobile format.
