One of the longest running touring musicals in the world will be performed in Weston next month.

The show embarks on Joseph’s journey to resolve Egypt’s famine after he was thrown into slavery by his 11 brothers, as they were jealous of his colourful coat, and he rose through the ranks to become running the Potiphar’s house.

Joseph then faces jail after he refuses the advances of the Potiphar’s wife, where he discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and finds himself in front of a mighty, but troubled, Pharaoh.

The stage show is based on the Coat Of Many Colours story of Joseph from the Bible’s book of Genesis, and first started as a 15-minute composition, which was written by Tim Rice and music composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Joseph And The Technicolour Dream Coat, produced by Bill Kenwright, has enjoyed West End and Broadway success and performances in more than 80 countries since it’s debut more than 40 years ago.

The theatre production will be performed at the venue, in High Street, from October 29 to November 2, with matinees at 2.30pm and shows at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £28-£34, are available at or call 01934 645544.

The Mercury has teamed up with Weston Playhouse Theatre to offer readers two pairs of tickets to Joseph And The Technicolour Dreamcoat on October 29 at 7.30pm.
