Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Presented by Musical Theatre Productions

March 26 to April 5, 2020
McManus Stage

This season, Musical Theatre Productions takes you on a trip to ancient Egypt with a story of biblical proportions as JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT makes its spectacular MTP debut! Featuring renowned music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and unforgettable lyrics by Tim Rice, JOSEPH has been a beloved and celebrated musical for over 50 years, having starred David Cassidy, Jason Donovan, Michael Damian, and Donny Osmond in the title role. Although the story may be from the Old Testament, audiences today will learn a powerful lesson on how living your true colours is the path to achieving your dreams. 

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT is a re-telling of the Biblical story of Joseph, a young man from Canaan whose unabashed pride and self-love makes him the target of envy and hate from his eleven brothers. Betrayed by his brothers and sold into slavery, Joseph’s journey to Egypt takes him from the house of a wealthy real-estate magnate, to the depths of prison, and eventually to the palace of Pharaoh himself! JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT tells the inspiring tale of staying true to one’s dreams to overcome any obstacle: it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, anyone can achieve greatness. After all, any dream will do.  

Featuring memorable and infectious numbers such as, “Go! Go! Go! Joseph,” “Close Every Door,” “Joseph’s Coat,” and “Any Dream Will Do”, JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT comes to the McManus Stage at the Grand Theatre March 27-April 5, 2020 in a lively presentation of this blockbuster musical that will inspire your inner dreams.
