“At lovers’ perjuries, They say, Jove laughs”
By William Shakespeare Directed by Gary Armagnac
A tale of rapturous young love entangled in a tragic web. There are those who fan the flames of hatred, and those who dive headlong into love and peace. Shakespeare focuses it all in one story of two families and the famous young lovers who thought, or didn’t think, but believed love was possible.

Joseph' Technicolor Dreamcoat
Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors that comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Book & Lyrics by Tim Rice.
