Andrew Lloyd Webber has launched a new YouTube channel that will stream a production of his musicals for free online every week, in an effort to keep people entertained while they are at home.

Titled The Shows Must Go On!, a new production from the composer's repertoire will be made available for a 48-hour period every Friday at 7pm.

The first production to be made available will be the 2000 adaptation of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which starred Donny Osmond, Maria Friedman, Richard Attenborough and Joan Collins. It will be available from 7pm on 3rd April.

Next week, on Good Friday, 10th April, the arena production of Jesus Christ Superstar starring Tim Minchin, Mel C, and Chris Moyles will be streamed.

Further shows to be made available will be announced in due course.

Last week, tickets for Andrew Lloyd Webber's latest show - a new adaptation of Cinderella - went on sale ahead of its world premiere at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in October.
