WFHS presents “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”
West Fargo High School Theatre is going Technicolor with the irresistible story of Joseph, his jealous brothers, and one very colorful garment in a musical parable that explores the unlimited possibility and power of everyday dreams and dreamers.
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s delightful interpretation of this legendary tale comes to vibrant life on the WFHS stage on Nov. 15, 16, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and on Nov. 17 and 24 at 2:30 p.m.
“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” follows the biblical story of Joseph, a prophetic dreamer, who journeys to Egypt after being sold into slavery by his 11 brothers who are jealous of Joseph’s status as the “favorite son.” Through his dreams, Joseph leads the people of Egypt through an extended famine, which eventually brings Joseph and his estranged brothers face-to-face capping off a long series of adventures in which Joseph’s spirit and humanity are continually challenged. “Joseph” is a dazzling theatre treat for the whole family set to a patchwork of musical styles ranging from country to calypso, rock ’n’ roll to reggae, and tango to techno.
West Fargo High School is pleased to bring “Joseph” back to its stage after a previous production in 2001 directed by Mary Knox-Johnson. The current production boasts over 75 young artists collaborating with a team of accomplished teachers and professionals led by director Adam Pankow. West Fargo High School Theatre is an award-winning, nationally-recognized program proudly sponsored by Essentia Health.
