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.
This new production will be directed by Laurence Connor (School of RockMiss Saigon) with choreography by JoAnn M Hunter and set and costume design by Morgan Large as well as lighting by Ben Cracknell and sound design by Gareth Owen.
