Theater of the Stars is not only presenting “Joseph and The Amazing Tecnicolor Dreamcoat,” but is also producing the show with local professional actors and children. “We have put together a very strong cast to bring this much cherished Biblical tale, with an ancient setting but contemporary relevance, to life,” said Theater of the Stars producer Christopher Manos. “We also have a very talented group of over 50 children from the Atlanta area that make up the special chorus in this production.”
The saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes alive 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.
This Atlanta engagement of “Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” is being produced by Christopher Manos and directed and choreographed by Norb Joerder. Joey Chancey is the musical director and conductor.
Other shows in the Theater of the Stars series include “Rock of Ages,” July 5-10, “Fiddler on the Roof,” July 19-24, “Come Fly Away,” Aug. 2-7, “Guys and Dolls,” Aug. 16-21 and “Annie,” Jan. 14-22, 2012. “Rock of Ages” is an arena-rock love story told through the mind blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and many more. Fiddler on the Roof has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. Its universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness. Come Fly Away is the new Broadway musical that brings together the legendary music of Frank Sinatra and the creative vision of Tony Award-winner Twyla Tharp (Movin’ Out). “Guys and Dolls” is one of the most famous musicals of all time and features classic numbers like “Luck Be a Lady Tonight,” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ The Boat.” “Annie” is the ultimate Cinderella story. It recounts the adventures of a little girl searching for her lost parents and finding a family with billionaire Daddy Warbucks.
