Atlanta, GA (May 2, 2011) – Theater of the Stars presents JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING
TECNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, with an award winning score by the legendary composing
team of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta for eight
performances from Tuesday, June 21 through Sunday, June 26. Tickets range from $25 to $65
and are on sale now at www.theaterofthestars.com. Discounted group tickets for 15 or more can
be purchased by calling 404-881-2000 or online at www.foxtheatre.org/groupsales.aspx.
Theater of the Stars is not only presenting JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECNICOLOR
DREAMCOAT but is also producing the show with local professional actors and children. “We
have put together a very strong cast to bring this much cherished Biblical tale, with an ancient
setting but contemporary relevance, to life,” says Theater of the Stars producer Christopher
Manos. “We also have a very talented group of over 50 children from the Atlanta area that make
up the special chorus in this production.”
The saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes alive in this delightful musical parable.
Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into
slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in
which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. Set to an engaging cornucopia of
musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old
Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
This Atlanta engagement of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECNICOLOR
DREAMCOAT is being produced by Christopher Manos and directed and choreographed by
Norb Joerder. Joey Chancey is the musical director and conductor.
