JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT
Noted Broadway actors Sean Palmer and Sarah Litzsinger are headed to Fort Worth for Casa Mañana’s production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, July 23 - 29 at Bass Performance Hall.
With a crash of drums and a flash of light, Joseph returns to Bass Performance Hall in his dazzling coat of many colors. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s classic Broadway musical is a retelling of the biblical story of Joseph, his incredible abilities and his fantastic coat. This family musical sings out to theatre lovers of all ages with a fabulous score including "Close Every Door" and "Any Dream Will Do."
