NCM Fathom Events and Omniverse Vision will present Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," starring Donny Osmond, in movie theaters nationwide in a special sing-along event.

The pre-recorded version of this fully staged production, originally shot at London's Pinewood Studios and specially remastered for this in-theater event, will be broadcast to select theaters on Monday, March 26, at 6 p.m. and again on Wednesday, April 4, at 7 p.m.

Presented in a never-before-seen sing-along version with subtitles for audiences to join in, this event also features an introduction and question-and-answer session with Osmond live from Salt Lake City, plus an animated opening sequence which features an 80-piece orchestra.

The pre-recorded version of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" is based upon the hit production that originally opened at the London Palladium in 1991 and went on to tour globally, grossing over $300 million. Shot at London's Pinewood Studios at the height of the theatrical run in 1999, it features Osmond as Joseph, a role he played in more than 2,000 shows across the U.S. and Canada.

Originally written in 1968 as a 25-minute 'pop cantata,' "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" was the first staged collaboration between Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
