With a crash of drums and a flash of light, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat returns this fall to Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre. The Bible-based Broadway sensation is live on stage in Indianapolis from October 8 through November 22.
Beef and Boards brings to life for Indianapolis theater the first collaboration between composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice to be staged. The musical is based on the Old Testament story of Joseph, the favorite of Jacob’s 12 sons. His brothers’ jealousy is fueled when Joseph receives the gift of a colorful coat from their father. Joseph’s dream, in which his brothers’ sheaves of wheat bow to his, provides the proverbial last straw. The enraged brothers abduct Joseph, destroy his coat, and sell him into slavery.
Down, but not out, Joseph finds that any dream will do for him to be happy again – and possibly even reunite his family. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat features a rainbow of musical styles with some of the best voices in Indianapolis music, from rock and country to pop and calypso. Songs include “One More Angel In Heaven,” “Close Every Door,” “Jacob and Sons” and “Any Dream Will Do.”
Rick Desloge, who made his debut at Beef and Boards earlier this season as Jim Hawkins in the Midwest Debut of Treasure Island, returns to play the role of Joseph. Amanda Lawson reprises her role as the Narrator.
The show is directed and choreographed by Indianapolis artist Doug King, who performed the role of Levi in the Chicago and Toronto touring productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat starring Donny Osmond in the title role. King has been performing at Beef and Boards for more than 20 years, and is a wonderful addition to this Indianapolis performing arts group.
There are 52 performances of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat in the intimate atmosphere of Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets shows range from $34 to $57, and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, fruit & salad bar, unlimited coffee, tea and lemonade. Parking is always free for this Indianapolis entertainment.
