Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

The Irresistible Musical Parable

May 17 to June 4

Drayton Festival Theatre

By turns dazzling, explosive, and electrifying, Joseph is truly a technicolor triumph!

Journey back to the ancient land of Canaan for an enchanting story of faith and forgiveness as the biblical tale of Joseph is chronicled with sparkling wit, irreverence, and imagination. When Joseph's father gives him a fabulous coat of many colors, his 11 jealous brothers hatch a devious scheme to sell him into slavery. But Joseph rises above his bleak circumstances due to his ability to interpret dreams, and becomes one of the most powerful men in Egypt.

Don't miss the rollicking musical masterpiece packed with incredible dance numbers, plenty of laughter, and catchy tunes like "Go, Go, Go Joseph," "Any Dream Will Do," and "Close Every Door."
