Musical ()

Music: Nick Munns Book & Lyrics: J. Edward Oliver Director: Frank Dunlop Choreographer: Jeff Thacker

Résumé: Based on the Biblical story of Esther, but burlesqued in the manner of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”. The story featured a beauty contest in which each girl said exactly the same words, and a number of magician’s tricks and illusions created by Mordecai—the King’s magician. It also included some pastiche numbers of current West
End shows.

Commentaires : This was clearly an attempt to create another “Joseph” - a show with a large children’s chorus suitable for schools and youth productions. However, something went wrong at the last minute and licences for the children were refused, accordingly the show went ahead with adults only. In 1985 a new and revised version called “Swan Esther and the King” was created and toured under the management of Bill Kenwright.
