Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor dreamcoat

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Roach, May 12, 2007.

  1. Has anyone done this with Upper KS2 children? We are trying to find a recording of the backing tracks for performance as we do not have a musician to play for us. Any help appreciated!
  2. Please?
  3. Did Joseph 3 years ago - I am not aware that there is a backing track available.
    Do you not know a competent pianist who would either record it for you - or better still - accompany you.
    From experience - backing tracks are ok but not easy to correct a mistake if something goes wrong. Also difficult to get timing perfect on places when music slows down or speeds up.
    I would try to find a competent pianist - if you can.
    Good Luck
    Are you doing the abridged version? Yellow covered score?

    You could try a computer program which "lifts" the vocals from a CD of the show, leaving you with a backing track. I use Magix Audio Studio, which has about an 80% success rate (as in it works 80% of the time and doesn't the other 20%). It cost me about £50 three years ago IIRC.

    We are also doing Joseph this summer, but haven't tried to create a backing track yet.

  5. thanx for your help. Have e-mailed the really useful group for help too. Will keep looking!
  6. You can buy a sing-along disc from dresscircle.co.uk, but it doesn't use all of the tracks, helpful for rehearsing though.
    The lyrics are all typed up on the TES resources page, I put them under Drama I think.
  7. Pick a different production.....it's truly mind-blowing awful when it's done badly....and toe - curlingly boring when done well...(IMHO)

    would really like to do that too - Where can I get the script/ words from ? I have found one or two backing cds on the suggested sites.

  10. Words are on resource bank but I can e-mail them to you if you like!

    Still trying to source a backing track as the linked one earlier is not the full performance

    I don't think a CD backing track is available for this musical. I would recommend you see if you can find a good pianist to accompany the children - and perhaps a good drum kit player, too!

    LOL ViolaClef, might be a little late now!

    These upper KS2 children are now doing A-Levels and the like!
