The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker.

When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Apr 27-May 20

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Apr 27-May 20

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Directed by Michael Hartsfield
Produced by Maureen Rogers
Musical Director: Mimi McGinniss
Choreographer: Kristin Rigsby

Friday April 27, 2018 through Sunday May 20, 2018

Location: Laurel Mill Playhouse

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018, 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.

The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”) and calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”

Produced by special arrangement with The Musical Company. Performances run weekends from Friday April 27, 2018 through Sunday May 20, 2018 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22 for general admission. Admission for students (12 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $17. Tickets can be purchased by clicking the link below.
