Reading Civic Theatre presents Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat which is an exciting energetic, funny–yet poignant –operetta about Joseph and his coat of many colors. Based on the biblical story, Joseph had many adventures in his life, beginning with his father and brothers and the way in which they related to one another. Through a series of twists and turns, Joseph was sold into slavery, placed in prison, was later released, and eventually became second in importance to the Pharaoh. Each scene is a vignette of Joseph’s life, performed in song, tied together with narration. Each song is performed in a different musical style: rock n’ roll, country, calypso, bop – you name it – Joseph has it. The variety is one of the reasons Joseph has been so successful. Each scene is different, both musically, and visually. It is an exciting adventure for the audience and the performers alike. As an operetta, there are few spoken lines. Joseph was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
