Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

December 3, 2010 7:30PM  to  January 2, 2011 10:30PM

Main Stage

Beck continues its holiday tradition of fine family entertainment with a humorous retelling of the biblical story of Joseph of Canaan. Center stage will be awash with a rainbow of colors in this rollicking musical, complete with a rousing children’s chorus, an amazing light show, buoyant choreography, splashy costumes, and musical stylings that appeal to all tastes—from Marleyesque reggae to spur-slapping country western to an Elvis-channeling pharaoh.

Bring the entire family! Preschoolers to their great-grandparents will be dazzled by this entertaining extravaganza.

Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat is sponsored by Parker Hannifin, Dependable Painting, First Federal Lakewood, Cox, Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, and Ohio Arts Council.
