Open Door Community Theatre Presents Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
“Sha la la, Joseph, you’re doing fine! You and your dream coat, ahead of your time!” One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and their wives and the coat of many colors.
Told entirely through song with the help of Narrator(s), 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. A family friendly musical for all ages! Go, Go, Go Joe!
