This event has passed.


Eastlight Theatre is presenting the 31st anniversary production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

This Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical tells the story of Joseph and hiseleven brothers. It was created as a soft rock fantasy that is fit for the entire family.Thousands of people have enjoyed the magic that is Joseph, so be sure to join us for this Central Illinois holiday favorite!

Told entirely through song with the help of a main character Narrator, the musical follows preferred son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled, Elvis-inspired, Pharaoh. Joseph’s solution to Egypt’s famine elevates him to Pharaoh’s right-hand man and reunites him with his family. The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”) and calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.” Directed by Scott Moore.
