  3. Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat


In Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat, the Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to life in a delightful musical parable. This all-ages family show was the first collaboration of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, and had a life as a concert piece before it evolved into a full blown show in London’s West End 50 years ago, and moving to Broadway in 1982.

Told entirely through song, the musical follows Joseph, favorite son of Jacob, who is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, and overcomes many challenges through his honesty and good character. Eventually, elevated to the position of right-hand man to an Elvis-inspired Pharaoh, he reunites with his family. This high-energy musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of musical styles. The show is fast-paced (running less than 90 minutes including intermission) and doesn’t give you much chance to catch your breath, but you’ll be singing and dancing all the way home!

This live musical is performed outdoors in historic Woodminster Amphitheater in Oakland’s beautiful Joaquin Miller Park by a large cast and live professional orchestra. Come early and enjoy a stroll along hillside trails, the views of the bay and cities below, and a picnic before the show.
