Youngsters from Scarborough YMCA bring Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to the stage next week.

Rehearsals are well under way for Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical – based on the biblical story of Joseph and his jealous brothers.

Joseph – the favourite son of Jacob – is blessed with vivid dreams that foretell the future.

Sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph endures a series of adventures which challenge him to his core.

News of Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams sparks the interest of the hilariously Elvis-like Pharaoh.

Joseph is out of jail and well on his way to second-in-command.

Eventually Joseph’s brothers find themselves unknowingly groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed.

A truly timeless Old Testament tale, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set to a multitude of musical genres, spanning from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock and roll.

Songs include Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door, Coat of Many Colours, Jacob and Sons and Go, Go Joseph.
