Many years ago, our family became acquainted with the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat by Andrew Lloyd Weber. Kathy and I first saw Joseph at the Pantages theatre and enjoyed it so much that we took our twin daughters to see it as soon as they were potty trained and old enough to sit still long enough to watch it. My wife made Technicolor dreamcoats for Amy & Wendy to wear to the theatre. Afterwards, the girls were invited back-stage to meet Joseph and the cast. Since then, we have sort of become Joseph groupies as we have travelled to see many performances of this production across the country.
Last night, we took the family to see a student-run production of Joseph at a small theatre in Bakersfield. We had a lot of fun. This time, the older girls passed down their dreamcoats to their younger sisters so that they too could wear something special to the show.
For those you who may be unfamiliar with the story or the musical, it is a truly delightful story for all ages.
I highly recommend this musical for it's powerful performance at many levels. I have uploaded more photos and narratives of the various shows we've seen to our family web site.
