Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterpiece began as a cantata for St. Paul's Junior School choir to sing at their Easter concert. The performance was such a success, a second performance was arranged, then a third. Webber's collaboration with Tim Rice has produced this musical. Joseph is stunning- musically and visually. Joseph also prominently features a large children's choir. If you, or your child has always wanted to try theatre, this production may be your perfect debut. Please join GECA at auditions and be a part of this amazing production.
