Joseph And The Technicolour Dreamcoat

Last night was opening night of Joseph.  Let me tell you, it has been one frantic week, what with dress rehearsals and extra rehearsals, and bludgeoning lyrics into tired old brains.  Miracle of miracles, we pretty much have it down - too bad we hadn't been at this point a couple of weeks back.

Anyway I think it was a decent performance.  We performed to a sold out audience of about 280 patrons.  My little solo "Do you remember those good years in Canaan?......" even went reasonably well, although my fake French accent could use more than a little work. As promised Joseph and the Narrator pulled us through in fine form.  Pharaoh also drew a huge amount of applause from the Elvis era audience.

Musings and meanderings from the Musical Gardener.


  1. I love the hairdos of the Ishmalites and Potifar's wife. The camels are something else, too. Looks like it was lots of fun and I'm sure the audience really appreciated it.

  2. Looks like it was a blast. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

  3. Sounds wonderful, Phil. I wish I could make it. :)

  4. More people should be involved in productions like these. It' amazingly good for performers and the community.

  5. What a great looking crew. I am impressed that your church did this wonderful musical.

  6. OOOh, looks like it was a awesome production!
