2023 Night Show Announced

The Tulip Festival Steering Committee has announced the annual Night Show musical production for the 82nd annual Tulip Festival, as Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat!

One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors. 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 cast of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat consists of approximately 40-60 people and will include a small children’s chorus. Auditions will be held in Orange City on January 9-14, 2023 for those who are freshmen in high school or older. Information on the children’s chorus will come at a later date. Directing this year’s show will be Todd McDonald and Pam Anderson will serve as music director, with Leanne Bonnecroy as producer.
