Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat hits the stage at Reedley High School this weekend. Joseph is a musical with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who also wrote The Phantom of the Opera. The story is based on the Biblical story of Joseph and the beautiful coat that his father made for him, making his many brothers very angry. This is considered a very family friendly show, with universal themes and catchy music. “[Joseph has] great music and the show is really fun,” said Mark Norwood, Kings Canyon Unified School District’s theatre arts coordinator.joseph
