Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
A humorously musical retelling of the Biblical story of Joseph.
The Narrator draws a school audience repeatedly into a very 20th century 'Technicolor' production of the Biblical story. Patriarch Jacob lived happily with his dozen sons, but his favoritism for bright Joseph, symbolized by the gift of a spectacular multi-colored coat, makes his brothers so jealous they end up selling him as a slave and staging his death. He rises in the service of wealthy Potifar, though his adulterous wife is falsely accused and incarcerated. His gift of dream-telling however wins him Pharoah's favor, in charge of planning for the 7 years of penury after 7 good ones he prophesied. When his brothers come to beg for food, it's time for reckoning and nobility.
