The Spartanburg Little Theatre (SLT) will present the Andrew Lloyd Weber favorite Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, on the stage of the David W. Reid Theatre in the Chapman Cultural Center on March 15 and 16 at 8 p.m. and on March 16 and 17 at 3 p.m.

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful family musical. 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.

Comprised of a cast of more than 60 youth and adults from all over the Upstate, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll.
