Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The story is based on the “coat of many colors” story of Joseph from the Bible’s Book of Genesis. This was the first Lloyd Webber and Rice musical to be performed publicly.
The show is almost completely sung-through (having very little dialogue). Its family-friendly storyline, universal themes and catchy music have resulted in numerous productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat being performed in schools and amateur theatre groups.
Joseph is the favourite son of Jacob and is blessed with vivid dreams that foretell the future. He is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and endures a series of adventures which challenge him to his core. Soon he finds himself belonging to Potiphar, whose wife makes advances toward Joseph and ultimately land him behind bars. However, news of Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams sparks the interest of the Pharaoh and soon Joseph is out of jail and well on his way to being second-in-command to Pharaoh. Eventually Joseph’s brothers find themselves unknowingly grovelling to the brother they betrayed. They fail to recognise him and Joseph tests their integrity. He ultimately reveals himself and the brothers are reconciled. A timeless Old Testament tale, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set to a multitude of musical genres, spanning from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock and roll.
