During lockdown, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals were shown for everyone to enjoy. The series of Lord Webber’s musicals then stopped, to make way for specials from other sources. However, one of the favourites will make a welcome return – but how can fans watch it?

The Shows Must Go On YouTube channel brought the theatre home every weekend throughout lockdown, entertaining millions of theatre fans.
After this new show, the channel will continue to release show clips over the summer but will be taking a brief hiatus from full shows before returning with more shows to entertain audiences at home, while theatres are closed.
A new series of shows will return again every weekend from mid-August.
As well as the YouTube channel, Magic at the Musicals, the digital radio station dedicated to musical theatre, is hosting a Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Day in conjunction with the show

What is Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat about?
Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat is based on the Bible story which sees Joseph, a young man, hated by his elder brothers.
He is given a coat by his father, who favours him, but his brothers are furious and sell him into slavery in Egypt.

Joseph is in Egypt but soon is imprisoned after he is framed by his master’s wife, but his ability to interpret dreams to tell of upcoming famine means he climbs the ranks with the Pharaoh.
He is soon in charge of parts of Egypt, only to have his brothers come to him for help in their hour of need.
Of course he has a huge decision to make, and he must decide if he thinks his brothers have changed.
