One of the Bible’s most beloved stories, Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, has hit the stage in Branson. The magnificent story about family, faith, integrity, and forgiveness has captured the hearts of millions and Sight & Sound Theater’s interpretation is sure to do the same. Featuring a larger-than-life stage, live animals, and brilliant storytelling, the story begins during Joseph’s childhood as his father Jacob’s favorite son of twelve. The perk of being the favorite son results in Jacob giving Joseph a beautiful, colorful coat which is met with considerable jealousy from his brothers. As a teenager, Joseph began interpreting dreams including two of his own that predicted his family bowing down to him. His brothers were already jealous of Joseph so upon hearing his dreams they plotted to kill him. What unfolds is a story of passion, sacrifice, and, ultimately, forgiveness.
The Sight & Sound Theater retells the story in a magnificent way through dream sequences, beautiful sets, and gorgeous costuming setting the stage for the magical story to unfold around the audience. The massive 20,000-square-foot stage features an Egyptian palace that spans 300 feet and wraps around three side of the audience.
