Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in Broadway JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT
Weathervane Community Playhouse
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.Lyrics by Tim Rice; Music by Andrew Lloyd WebberFor more information on Weathervane Community Playhouse, click hereFor more information on Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, click here

Christmas Pageant Crisis in Broadway CHRISTMAS PAGEANT CRISIS
Mystery & Mayhem Dinner Theatre
The Glad Tidings Players perform a Christmas Pageant every year. Their claim to fame, so to speak, derives from the same two performers playing the lead roles for the last ten years. This year marks a record-breaking accomplishment for the most consecutive years with the same leads. But problems abound this year. The angels are on strike; The Farmer who loans the animals sold his farm; the shepherds are allergic to hay; the stage manager is nuttier than a fruit cake; and the stable is condemned. Will the Glad Tidings Players present the Pageant and shine and bask in the glow of accomplishment, or will they have an epiphany as they mull over what to do next? You'll not want to miss this hilarious Holiday Who-done-it.
