Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Classifieds -

This Sa­tur­day, Ju­ly 22, the John Ru­pert T­he­a­t­re in Par­so­na­ge S­treet, Graaff-rei­net, will be scree­n­ing Jo­seph and the A­ma­zing Techni­co­lor D­re­am­co­at. The doors to the t­he­a­t­re will o­pen at 13:30 with the film star­ting at 14:00. Tic­kets at R25 e­ach will be a­vai­la­ble at the door. 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 co­lours” sto­ry of Jo­seph from the Bi­ble’s Book of Ge­ne­sis. This was the first Lloyd Web­ber and Ri­ce mu­si­cal to be per­for­med pu­bli­cly (the first, The Li­kes of Us, w­rit­ten in 1965, was not per­for­med until 2005).

The show has litt­le-spo­ken di­a­lo­gue; it is com­ple­te­ly sung-through. Its fa­mi­ly-f­riend­ly story­li­ne, u­ni­ver­sal the­mes and ca­t­chy mu­sic ha­ve re­sul­ted in nu­me­rous pro­ducti­ons of Jo­seph and the A­ma­zing Techni­co­lor D­re­am­co­at; ac­cor­ding to the Re­al­ly U­se­ful Group, by 2008 mo­re than 20 000 schools and a­ma­teur t­he­a­t­re groups had success­ful­ly put on pro­ducti­ons.
