With "a crash of drums, a flash of light," Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the internationally acclaimed musical and dance extravaganza explodes on the Pratt Community College Carpenter Auditorium stage this March 9-11.

PCC’s Performing Arts students and college staff along with more than 80 community members make up this colorful cast directed by Misty Beck, Speech Communications/Drama and Theatre Instructor.

The first full-length musical by the legendary theatrical team of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, JOSEPH is a lovely, comic, and colorful journey through the Biblical story of young Joseph, sold into slavery by his brothers after his father favored him with a gorgeous colored cloak. His gift of prophecy saves him from an uncertain fate and helps him to rescue Egypt from famine.  Animated with a high-energy mix of music and dancing from 50's rock to calypso to country, this show is hailed for its family-friendly storyline, universal themes, and catchy music.

Described as a high-voltage extravaganza, Joseph includes such classic songs as the contemplative "Any Dream Will Do," the Caribbean infused "Benjamin Calypso," the dazzling "Jacob and Sons/Joseph's Coat," the rockabilly sensation "Song of the King “and the unforgettable "Go, Go, Go Joseph." 

Starring as Joseph is freshman Joseph Stewart, freshmen Kayley Geesling and Kayla Harbaugh tell the story as the narrators and community member and alumnae Josh Jacobs channels his inner Elvis as the Pharaoh. A large chorus of both adults and children are featured in the show as well as a principal ensemble and the brother’s ensemble.
