Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Lyrics by Tim Rice Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
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!
The original Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice collaboration, the show continues to delight huge audiences annually, performed by amateur and schools groups and professionally in concert halls, arenas and theatres around the world.
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.
COVID GUIDELINES – Updated as of 09/12/21
New measures include mandatory face coverings for customers and visitors, except for those under the age of 11 or medically exempt. Masks must now be worn at all times in our theatre and front of house areas, including in the auditorium during the performances, except when eating and drinking. All of our staff will continue to wear masks in public areas.
Following government guidelines, from 01 September 2021 to attend events at Great Hall at The Leys , ticket holders aged 18+ must show proof of one of the below at the venue:
We are choosing to use the NHS COVID PASS scheme, in order to provide a safe and comfortable environment for everyone attending the event. The NHS COVID Pass lets you voluntarily share your COVID-19 vaccination or test status in a secure way (we receive no private data). It is NOT a “vaccination passport” and is FREE to obtain.
All attendees aged 18+ will be asked to present a valid in-date NHS COVID PASS on arrival. Details of how this can be obtained are available via the Government website, but the primary method is using the NHS App on your smartphone (not the NHS COVID-19 app). Printed options are also available for non-smartphone users by calling 119 or from the NHS website. Please arrange this in advance of your visit (allowing up to 5 days if you need a paper copy).
To present a valid pass, attendees are required to:
be fully vaccinated (2 weeks after a full course of vaccination); or if not vaccinated,
have provided a negative lateral flow test (LFT) or PCR test within 48 hours prior to the event (a home test must be reported to the Government test reporting website ); or
have natural immunity (within 180 days following a positive test after the isolation period has ended); or
be exempt according to the NHS by obtaining a medical exemptions form
You must not attend the event if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g. fever, continuous cough, loss or change of taste/smell), or if you are feeling unwell with any cold/flu symptoms, or if you are required to isolate (including after foreign travel where required).
WHAT CAN I DO IF I AM UNABLE TO OBTAIN A NHS COVID PASS?
A few people may not be able to obtain an NHS COVID Pass, such as visitors from overseas. In these circumstances we will accept proof of a recent negative test (such as showing the email or SMS text message received when reporting a home test). You do not need to be registered with the NHS to record a test result, but you will need a UK postcode, access to the internet, an email address and a mobile telephone number. Please also bring photographic ID to the venue.
If you cannot provide a COVID Pass or proof of a negative test, we may ask you to complete a self-declaration visitor form, in which we will ask you to confirm that you are fully vaccinated, have no symptoms and have not recently been in contact with anyone who has tested positive.
We cannot accept the vaccination card as proof of vaccination.
We recognise that some people may be exempt or feel uncomfortable presenting an NHS COVID Pass or other proof of COVID status. If you are exempt, please be aware that you can still apply for a COVID Pass. The pass won’t show others that you have a medical exemption, just that you have a valid Pass. To obtain a Pass in this way, please call 119 and ask for a COVID Pass medical exemptions application form.
We will do our best to admit everyone to the event.
