Joseph and the Amazing, Technicolor Dreamcoat by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Weber
June 28 & 29 and July 5, 6, and 7, 2019
To celebrate Curtain Call Theatre's 25th Anniversary we are performing the first musical ever performed by Curtain Call, and performed for ten years of musicals: Joseph and the Amazing, Technicolor Dreamcoat! Synopsis: A Narrator opens the show by introducing Joseph, the dreamer ("Prologue”). The Narrator then draws the audience’s attention to Joseph’s father and his 12 sons ("Jacob and Sons"). Jacob has given Joseph, his youngest and favourite son, a multi-colored coat and his brothers are envious of him ("Joseph's Coat"). The brothers’ jealousy is compounded by Joseph's dreams, which suggest that he is destined to rule over them ("Joseph's Dreams"). To stop this from happening they try to kill him, before changing their minds and selling him as a slave to some passing Ishmaelites ("Poor, Poor Joseph"). To hide what they have done, Joseph’s brothers and their wives tell Jacob that his beloved son has been killed by a wild animal. As proof, they show Joseph’s coat, which they have torn to pieces and covered in goat’s blood ("One More Angel in Heaven"). When the devastated Jacob exits, the brothers and wives cheerfully celebrate Joseph’s departure (“Hoedown”).

Cabaret 2019: All I Care About is Love
Curtain Call is so excited to bring our Holiday Cabaret to its second annual performance. This year we are including a theme: Love. We are looking forward to performing pieces of many genres that talk about love. We hope to sing not only about romantic love and also about familial love and love among friends. Curtain Call is proud to give a space for the incredibly local talent to spread joy and of course, love.
Auditions will be held in the later part of the year and we look forward to seeing you all there.
