Rotherham Teachers Student Academy (RTSA) will stage West End classic Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, penned by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

Joseph, the favourite son of Jacob, is blessed with vivid dreams that foretell the future.

These suggest that the golden boy is destined for greatness — something his 11 brothers cannot stand the thought of.

They sell him into slavery, telling Jacob his favourite son is dead.

Carted off by Ishmaelites, Joseph endures hardships and imprisonment — until Pharaoh learns of his fortune-telling talent.

Aged from six to 20 years old, RTSA members have gone on to perform in shows touring nationwide.

Local lad and RTSA graduate Johnny Stewart toured with Miss Saigon in May.

They have even wowed crowds internationally — including at Disney Land’s International Festival of Dance and Performing Arts.

Tickets for Joseph are on sale now and cost £14 individually, with family passes costing £50.
