A programme, Bill Kenwright presents ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. The programme has a simple, plain white cover, slightly yellow with age, and red writing showing the logo of the Birmingham Hippodrome at the top and the word ‘Programme’ at the bottom in large letters. The title of the show itself is in the middle of the cover, and is a black logo with the figure of a robed man holding up the words with arms outstretched. On the back cover is a mirror image of the red writing on the front, and instead of the show title there is a cartoon hippopotamus in evening dress. A pen annotation on the front cover reads ‘1984’. The inside details the cast list, act list and information about the show. The musical commenced on 12 March 1984 and ran for one week.
