St. Jacobs Country Playhouse

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

The Irresistible Musical Parable

July 12 to August 5, 2023

Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

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 this 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.” 

Audience Recommendation: Recommended for ages 10 and up. There is no official rating system for live theatre. We encourage you to use your judgment based on your child's age and maturity level.

Running Time: 1 hour and 45 minutes including a 20 minute intermission

The entire production was so well done - the scenery, the costumes, and the entire cast - the usual high standards of Drayton Entertainment.

Absolutely loved it. What incredible talent on that stage!! The voices were just flawless. I laughed and cried and just had a wonderful time. The theatre is so nice to sit in, big enough to hold a show like that but quaint enough to have great views of the entire stage. We will be coming back!
Tracy F, Caledonia
We've never been disappointed by any of the shows here. My husband saw Joseph in TO many years ago...he said this show was just as good if not better than the TO one. We had our two nephews (ages 12 and 9) and nieces (age 8) with us and they loved it!
Sarita K, Listowel
A really great show. Loved the dancing and singing.
Pail W, Guelph
Great show! Absolutely loved it. Very talented performers and very entertaining. Would recommend.

St. Jacobs Country Playhouse continues to deliver spectacular performances! My family and I thoroughly enjoy the costumes, choreographer and first rate abilities of the actors in the plays. Our favourite is musicals, and St. Jacobs Country Playhouse provides us excellent quality. So close to home is an added bonus.

Wow! Fun, energetic, professional, and entertaining! I love this play, saw it twice with Donny Osmond back in the day in Toronto, and this production did such a great job. Some truly standout performances by the cast. If you enjoy musicals, live theatre, you need to see this! We are blessed to have such quality productions in our community. Congrats to everyone involved. Special shout-out to my kid's music teacher (no idea he was in it until we got there), truly the "King".
Greg B, Kitchener
We three loved the show. It's been awhile since we were at your theatre, but were very impressed with it: clean, and very friendly people working there!! The actors and actresses were amazing, would go back again today to see if we could. Music was a smashing success!!
Linda M, Lambton Shores
Loved, loved, loved it. It was a treat to watch the reactions and complete focus of the young children sitting across the aisle. I saw it way back when and would definitely see it again.
Chris J, Kitchener
The last time I saw Joseph was in Toronto, with Donny Osmond as the lead. To attend yesterday's matinee and see such incredible talent on a theatre stage five minutes from my home was completely unexpected. My first visit to the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse was a resounding success! Kudos to the entire Joseph team for the production, music, and performance quality. Five stars! And to the house and box office staff at the theatre - you could not have made us feel more welcome! Thank you!
Marilyn C, Waterloo
Wonderful! Such talented actors in this production. We were a group of 6 and everyone said it was so good they would see it again.

I have seen this musical in Toronto many years ago with Donny Osmond and loved it. This time I brought my 5 grand kids (ages 4 to 17) because I thought they would enjoy the fast pace, music and dancing. I am so pleased to say that they loved it too. I think it was a great experience for them all. I could happily go see it again tomorrow.

Thank you to the entire cast and crew (by the way the costumes and scenery were also amazing) for giving all of us such a wonderful, memorable performance.

Fabulous production! The play had great humour and I loved the facial expressions of the performers throughout the play. Wonderful music and singers and dancers!

Drayton Entertainment never fails to put on a magnificent production. From stage set to incredibly talented people. Going to TO is a waste of time when we have such great productions in the smaller venues. Joseph was incredible!!!

The show was incredible! Everything from the costumes, the set and of course the performers were flawless. Our group was absolutely amazed and can't wait to come back to the Play House Country Theatre for another show!

Second time seeing it and think this time was even better than the first.
Penny L, Waterloo
Excellent show by excellent cast.

It was the first time that I took my two boys and husband to see a musical and we all loved it so much. The narrator's voice was amazing and Joseph's acting was top notch. It's worth coming to see.

Robert S, Stratford
I was blown away by the talent on stage, the set, the costumes, everything really. And were super impressed by the diversity of the cast. We had an amazing afternoon.

It certainly was amazing. Joseph was great and the Pharaoh (Elvis) almost stole the show. Actually everyone did a super job. I would rate this as a must see!
Laverne F, Cambridge
Had never seen Joseph before. Loved it!
Cathy M, Oil Springs
Awesome play! From start to finish.
Marianne V, Waterloo
Fantastic production!
Gloria D, Fenwick
NOTHING on BROADWAY could possibly top this performance! The young people, (the kids) were fantastic, and ALL stayed in character. All vocals were top notch, AND, every word could be clearly heard, as all had microphones, which doesn't happen at Stratford! It was SO WELL rehearsed, and that really pays off! Keep up the great work Drayton Entertainment!
Doug & Liz C, Burlington
5 stars+++++++ Amazing from start to finish!
Colleen H, Brantford
Oh, my... Joseph was an entire upper! (The "sheep" set the stage :-) ). True, strong (not brassy) voices of Joseph, Narrator, Simeon were a delight. Dancers/ensemble: incredible, as I've come to expect from Drayton. And it was fun. Kinda quirky stuff going on, and you'll laugh. Go see!
Anne C, Goderich
Thoroughly enjoyed.
Diane S, Breslau
Amazing cast!!! So talented!!! Great choreography!!!! Fun! Fun! Fun!

Very entertaining! Amazing talent!
Emily R, New Hamburg
Absolutely Amazing!! Strong Cast! The Narrator was a show stopper - what a voice!! Joseph was so well portrayed, and the perfect voice!!
Valerie K, Kitchener
It was fantastic. Just as good as any musical I've seen in Stratford. The singing was great as you could understand every work that was sung which is important in an all singing musical.
Judy H, Stratford
Great singing and dancing, very enjoyable.
Judy S, Waterloo
My sister and I absolutely loved it. I would go back and see it again.
Sheila A, Listowel
An amazing production from downbeat to curtain calls. The energy level from every cast member was immeasurable! And the choreography - fantastic and innovative. Took a friend for whom this was her first Drayton production, and she couldn't stop raving! Congratulations to all!
Nancy L, Niagara Falls
Absolutely loved the show and the cast! What a talented group of people! Recommend this show to anyone who loves theatre.
Terri I, Stoney Creek
This was an outstanding production, as are almost ALL Drayton productions. I particularly loved that the enunciation of words in the songs was excellent. There were no words, sung by any of the cast, that I could not understand. I really appreciated that. Attention to detail in the set, props, and costumes was top notch. All together, this production was smart, clever, funny, uplifting, and joyous. The cast members performed exceptionally.
Iain M, Guelph
This was my third time seeing this show and I'd go again. This time I took 2 teen-aged granddaughters and they loved it as well. We sang "Go, Go Joseph" all the way home. And we're still singing it today. The mixtures of music genres and costumes are delightful. The cast is very talented. This is a show for all ages.
Madeline R, Waterloo
It was well done, I havent seen it before so have nothing to compare it to but Drayton always puts on an excellent show and this was no exception.
Kelly M, Sarnia
An incredible performance. Top notch singing and choreography. Creative design and execution. A lot of fun with my granddaughter!
Geoff M, Kitchener
Top quality performance by all the actors/actresses. Worth seeing it twice.
Jim S, Hamilton
Fantastic singing and energy from the entire cast and chorus. Fun for the whole family.
