COAL CITY — Smalltown Theatrics will present “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” Friday, July through Sunday, July 28 at the Coal City High School auditorium.
Tickets are $10. They can be purchased online via the website,www.smalltowntheatrics.org, or at the door. 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, 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, this tale emerges both timely and timeless.
