One of the most enduring and exuberant shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set, according to Tim Rice's playful lyrics, "way, way back many centuries ago, not long after the Bible began".This all singing, all dancing extravaganza follows the story of Jacob's favourite son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph meets the Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the advances of Potiphar's wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams and soon finds himself in front of the mighty Pharaoh. Joseph's solution to Egypt's famine elevates him to Pharaoh's right-hand man and reunites him with his family.Combining country and western, ballads and calypso with Elvis-style rock, the show includes songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice that have become unforgettable pop and musical theatre standards, including Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door To Me, Jacob and Sons, There's One More Angel In Heaven and Go, Go, Go Joseph.Green Room promises you hilarity and heartfelt emotion in this colourful explosion of pure joy and comic delights.Box Office - 07531 122206

Drop dead gorgeous, sassy and smart, Ruby Wax brings her new one-woman show to the stage.
Based on her number one best seller, “A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled.” She’s been honoured with the title of poster girl for mental illness; once crazy now less so, she gives a tour of the mind – how to use it, not lose it.
Ruby Wax if you don’t know is a much loved, U.S. born comedy-actor-writer of incredibly successful books and TV shows including script editor of “Absolutely Fabulous” and is a mental health campaigner.
This event is your passport to saner living and is a follow up to her previous sell out show and book, “Sane New World.”
By the way, she graduated from Oxford with a Masters in Mindfulness–based Cognitive Therapy (at a late stage) three years ago so she should know her stuff.
