Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Thursday 13 July 2017, 7pm
Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber
Featuring Thaxted Primary School
Joseph was the first musical by Rice and Lloyd Webber to be publicly performed (in 1968). Enormously popular ever since, it gives musical life to the story of Joseph and his ‘coat of many colours’ in the Book of Genesis. This performance by Thaxted Primary School will be led by the children in Year 6 supported by the rest of the children in Key Stage 2. Over the last decade, productions by the School as part of the Festival have included The Magic Piper, One Sun One World and more recently The Prince and The Pauper. There is a strong tradition of music-making at the School and all children are given opportunities to perform in the wider community.
