Orchestra / Instrumentation

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Rehearsal Set Includes

  • 30 Libretto-Vocal Scores
  • 2 Piano-Vocal Scores


The available versions of Joseph are as follows:


Regular (10 Piece Orchestration)

Created specifically with schools in mind, this is a simplified, 90-minute version of the 1991 Palladium production. The dance breaks in “One More Angel in Heaven” and “Those Canaan Days” have been removed, and the Megamix at the end of the show has been replaced with a series of simple reprises. In addition, there are numerous small adjustments and abridgements to the score throughout the show. None of these impacts the story.
