Tickets ranging from $45-$65 are available at or by calling the Lutcher Box Office at 409-886-5535. Group and student specials are available.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer raved: “This new production of Joseph is an exuberant success that stays true to all of the original’s joyfulness, humor and fantastic songs while subtly updating it…”

One of the most enduring shows of all time, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” is the irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son. The first collaboration of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber (Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera, Cats) and lyricist Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King), JOSEPH blends pop, country and rock into an uplifting, technicolored story of biblical proportions.

Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colors, this magical musical is full of unforgettable songs including Those Canaan Days, Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door.

Produced by TROIKA Entertainment, LLC, the tour features Scenic Design by Beowulf Boritt, Costume Design by Jennifer Caprio, Lighting Design by Howell Binkley, Sound Design by John Shivers and David Patridge, Projection & Video Design by Daniel Brodie, and Music Supervision by David Kreppel.

This show is sponsored locally by Total.

The Frances Ann Lutcher Theater for the Performing Arts is located at 707 Main, Orange, Texas.
