Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice based on the character of Joseph from the book of Genesis in the Bible. The musical came to development when Webber’s longtime friend, Alan Doggett, a musical teacher at Colet Court school in London, commissioned Webber and Rice to write a 15-minute pop cantata for the school's choir. On March 1, 1968 the students of the Colet Court school performed the first iteration of the musical which was met by a standing ovation and the offer of a deal by music publishers Novello and Co.
More than half a century and many productions later, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat continues to be appreciated by crowds of varying demographics, delivering the story of Joseph in a captivating and entertaining way.
