Scottsdale Desert Stages Theatre (DST) announces the opening of their fresh and modern version of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at their new location in Scottsdale Fashion Square.
“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” tells the story of how Joseph, after being sold into slavery by his brothers, becomes the Pharaoh’s right hand man when he discovers his ability to interpret dreams. With his multicolored coat by his side, Joseph navigates through the waters of jealousy, betrayal and reconciliation with his family. The family-fun musical began as a short 20 minute show in London in 1968 and premiered on Broadway in 1982. The play was adapted to film in 1999 starring Donny Osmond as Joseph.
The original cast starred Bill Hutton and Laurie Beechman who were both Tony Award nominees for their performances in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”. The play’s music is by seven- time Tony Award winner and three-time Grammy Award winner Andrew Lloyd Webber, with lyrics by Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Tony Award and Grammy Award winning Tim Rice.
This musical is directed and choreographed by Lynzee and Mark 4man and stars a multigenerational cast with some of the most talented adult and youth actors in the valley. The musical will explore adult themes and is best suited for teenage and adult audiences.
“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” performances will run from April 6 through May 6 with shows every Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. at Desert Stages Theatre. There will be no 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, April 7. To purchase tickets visit desertstages.org or call the box office at 480-483-1664.
