Come see colorful Joseph save Egypt
and his family at Snow College play
By Lloyd Call
EPHRAIM—The popular play “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” will be performed by the Snow College theater department this week, Feb. 27-29, and next week March 5-7 at the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts, with curtain time at 7:30 p.m.
And, reminiscent of last year’s Phantom of the Opera, in grand theatrical fashion, a gala will be held for opening night. Dress to the nines (your most colorful duds will do) and celebrate the work of the theater for this year and next. “We have exciting new things on the horizon. Please join us for live music, hor d’oeuvres, a silent auction, next year’s season reveals and more,” says director Brad Olsen.
In the play, Jacob, also called Israel, has 12 sons, but his favorite son is Joseph. Besides lots of praise, Jacob gives Joseph an amazing many-colored coat, which makes his other brothers quiver with jealousy. They have Joseph sold into slavery in Egypt, but God has great plans for young Joseph. He goes from an Egyptian household to prison, then to the side of the Pharaoh. Eventually, Joseph confronts and then saves his brothers and family.
