Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat by Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber
Proposed by director Mary Jeanne Reynales
Music Direction by Rob Birdwell
“Sha la la, Joseph, you’re doing fine! You and your dreamcoat, ahead of your time!” One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors.
Told entirely through song with the help of a main character Narrator, the musical follows preferred son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled, Elvis-inspired, Pharaoh. Joseph’s solution to Egypt’s famine elevates him to Pharaoh’s right-hand man and reunites him with his family.
This show is appropriate for all audiences, adapted from literature, and with humor and beautiful accessible music, helping to bring the community together with singing, dancing, children, and a large diverse adult cast.
