Jolly Jester Community Theater (Youth)

Jolly Jester Community Theater is a musical theater opportunity for the both adults and kids age 7 and up.

Our production will be Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Familiar to all from the very childhood biblical story about the wise Joseph. The show begins with a narrator singing about the story of Joseph to a Sunday school class. The story is about Joseph and his 11 brothers. Jacob, his father gives him a coat. His brothers and their wives are jealous of this dreamer brother of theirs and his coat and finds a way to get rid of him. The story moves to Egypt where we find Joseph is a slave and ends up in jail. Pharoah who has had dreams he can’t figure out calls for Joseph to help him interpret his dreams. Joseph has found favor with Pharoah. Meanwhile back in Canaan we find out the fate of the brothers and wives and witness a great reconciliation at the end. The story is told through 24 catchy songs that everyone will love.
