Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
The born-in-a-barn players are currently working on another great musical this summer-Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams, and his father’s favorite son. Sold into slavery by his envious brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. 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. Great fun for the entire family!
Show dates are: July 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, 29; August 2, 3, 4, 5. Ticket prices for single seats are $15 and the price for group rates is $14. To order tickets simply call 402-234-2553 to reserve your tickets.
The performances are sure to be wonderful and greatly entertaining. Be sure to buy tickets in advance to see what our local talent has worked so hard to perform!
