Presented by React! Youth Theatre
Way, way back many centuries ago…2010 to be exact… React! Youth Theatre performed their first ever show – Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – on a small school stage in Consett and they’ll be doing it once again at Empire Theatre Consett this March!
This is a joyous retelling of the Biblical story of Joseph, his 11 scheming brothers and his coat of many colours. The brothers, tired of their father’s obvious favouritism for Joseph, plot to get rid of him for good. Sold as slave and sent to Egypt, will he be able to prosper, as his dreams suggest?
With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, this show is a kaleidoscope of catchy songs and colourful dance numbers – Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door to Me, Those Canaan Days and Go Go Go Joseph – parodying various musical styles from country and western to rock ‘n’ roll, French ballad, calypso and jazz.
