In late February Do It With Class Young People’s Theatre presented The Little Prince. Now, a week or so after Easter, they’re back with their interpretation of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s award-winning Biblical musical about Joseph and his coat of many colours. As recounted in Genesis, Joseph was the son of the Hebrew patriarch Jacob and his wife Rachel. He was sold into slavery by his jealous step-brothers and ended up being head poobah of Egypt or something.
Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat goes April 10-12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Shumiatcher Room at Conexus Arts Centre. Tickets range from $10.75-$29.50 and can be obtained by calling 525-9999.
To give you a taste, here’s video from 2011 of some high school students performing “Song of the King” from the show:
