That is Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, beloved musical about Joseph from the Bible and his coat of many colors. Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park Theatre is proud to present this family-friendly musical (by special arrangement with The Musical Company, LP) on June 22, 23 and 24. Fridays and Saturdays are at 7:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $10 for students and seniors.

Story of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber) is told entirely through song with the help of a main character Narrator, the musical follows preferred son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphar's wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled, Elvis-inspired, Pharaoh. Joseph's

solution to Egypt's famine elevates him to Pharaoh's right-hand man and reunites him with his family. (The Musical Company)

This catchy musical mirrors the cast. The musical is about bringing family together and many cast members are performing with family. Many cast members have performed at the park in the past, some have moved hundreds of miles away, and are now returning "home." This show is directed by Lori Carmine (Park Manager) together with Music Director Mark Epling and Choreographer Lori Bowen. Here are a few fun notes about the leads and their return to the park stage.

The role of Jacob, Joseph's father, is played by: Mike Eulitz

(June 22, 23 and 24). Many know Mike as the City of Joliet's Roadways Manager, but he is also a talented vocalist.
