Gallery 7 Theatre presents Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Abbotsford troupe presents 100th production in its 28-year history

Gallery 7 Theatre continues its 2018-2019 “Back to Classics” theatre season with the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical sensation Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, starting on March 22.

The production featuring lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber will be Gallery 7’s 100th production in its 28-year history.

This favourite musical extravaganza follows the Biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colours.

After being sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph gains favour with Potiphar, the Egyptian noble.

Rejecting the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife, Joseph winds up in jail, where he discovers an ability to interpret dreams.

His new-found talent catches the attention of the Elvis-inspired Pharaoh, and Joseph is promoted to right-hand man.

But during a famine, his family needs his help and Joseph is forced to decide whether to forgive or take revenge.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is one of the most popular shows of all time.

“People of all ages will delight in this entertaining classic,” said Ken Hildebrandt, Gallery 7 Theatre’s executive/artistic director.

“Our team is pulling out the stops to bring Fraser Valley audiences a theatre experience they won’t soon forget.”

International director and producer Tony James is directing the cast of nearly 30 performers, many of whom will be performing multiple roles in the show.

He is supported by a talented design team hailing from across the Lower Mainland.

Reuben Leonard plays the title role of Joseph, while Karina Falk performs the role of the narrator.

Michael Holman, who last appeared in Gallery 7 Theatre’s production of The Miracle Worker, will play Potiphar, while Dianna Fast will play Potiphar’s wife.

Keegan Zaporozan plays the highly entertaining Elvis-impersonating Pharaoh.

The production runs March 22, 23 and 26-30 at the Abbotsford Arts Centre, 2329 Crescent Way. Show times are 7:30 p.m., with matinees on March 23 and 30 at 2 p.m.
