BATH — “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” kicks off the 2018-19 performance season at the Chocolate Church Arts Center this month.

Told entirely through song with the help of a main character narrator, played portrayed by Hope Horton of Brunswick, the musical follows the adventures of preferred son Joseph, played by Max Middleton of Bath).

After being sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled Pharaoh. Joseph’s solution to Egypt’s famine elevates him to Pharaoh’s right-hand man and reunites him with his family.
