OCP presents “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” 

“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” is an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical with lyrics by Tim Rice. 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. 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.”

Show dates are Nov. 7-9, 14-16 at 7:37 p.m., Nov. 10 and 17 at 2:37 p.m.
