Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - on this weekend

By Sue-Ann Wayow

A STORY of jealousy, betrayal, banishment, forgiveness and reconciliation will be told in song this week and weekend.
Presentation College, San Fernando is hosting the musical production "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat."
It will be held at Naparima Bowl, San Fernando.

A press release from the school stated: " The story, recounted mainly in song, revolves around the Biblical Joseph, favoured son of Jacob, whose eleven brothers are jealous of him and plot to get rid of him.
Rejoicing in having accomplished their goal, the brothers present to their grief-stricken father, Joseph’s bloodied multi-coloured coat as proof of his ‘demise’. The coat is significant as it is the symbol of the father’s preference for Joseph. "

Joseph overcomes many challenges including being a slave in Egypt to eventually becoming second in command over the Egyptians.
In the end he is reunited with his father who comes to Egypt on his powerful son’s bidding. "In the final scene, Joseph once again wears his multi-coloured coat as he and his family rejoice that the one who was lost is now found and returned to the bosom of the family," the release stated.
