  • Alexandra Musical Society - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

The Alexandra Musical Society presents 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'.

Since 1957, Alexandra Musical Society has delivered high class productions to the people of the Central Otago region and beyond... local theatre, for and by, local people. This year we are very proud to present Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'. Joseph And the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is one of the world’s most beloved family musicals. Released as a concept album in 1969, this multi award winning show has been performed hundreds of thousands of times including multiple runs in the West End and on Broadway, international tours and productions in over 80 countries! Told entirely through song with the help of the Narrator, the show follows the story of Jacob’s favourite son Joseph and his eleven brothers. After being sold into slavery by the brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled showman, the Pharaoh. As Joseph strives to resolve Egypt’s famine, he becomes Pharaoh’s right-hand man and eventually reunites with his family.
