In its first day of dress rehearsal, an excited fervor surrounds the cast and crew of the Mostly Theatre Company's production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat."
Preparing for the run-through of the performance, some cast members walk around in sandals, robes and turbans. While another is adorned with a gold headpiece and sequins.
Soundchecks begin and the children's chorus patiently waits for its chance to make its debut in the show.
"Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," a musical with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, retells the story of Joseph from the book of Genesis.
Son of Jacob and Rachel and the favorite of 12 sons, Joseph is blessed with an ability to interpret dreams. He is resented for his ability and for the beautiful dreamcoat given to him by his father. Sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph eventually finds himself in Egypt working alongside the pharaoh.
