The Imperial Dinner Theatre of Pocahontas is hitting the road with it's production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's ever popular and energizing Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. Coming to Poplar Bluff at the Tinnin Arts Center for one night only on June 18, the show is a fundraiser to rebuild the Imperial after the devastating floods in April.

It is the Biblical story of Joseph and the coat of many colors. Joseph is able to interpret dreams, and is the bearer of an amazing coat. These facts lead Joseph's eleven brothers to become insatiably jealous. Thus, they sell Joseph into slavery to some passing Ishmaelites. After refusing the advances of his owner' Potifar's wife, Joseph is sent to jail. The Pharaoh soon hears of Joseph's ability and appoints him to the post of Number Two man in Egypt. Years later, Joseph's now starving brothers arrive in Egypt and ask Joseph, whom they don't recognize, for assistance. Joseph, in turn, gives his brothers a scare, but eventually grants them all they desire, reveals his identity, and reunites the family.

The cast is rounded out by singers, dancers, cute kids and a truckload of colorful costumes! This high energy, retelling of this amazing Biblical story will be a great experience for the entire family. Great fun for groups, and 20 people or more get a group discount by calling the Imperial at 870-892-0030.

The show only (no dinner) is Saturday June 18 at 7:30 p.m. at The Tinnin Arts Center on the campus of Three Rivers Community College. General admission tickets are $12.00. For more information, visit the website at www.imperialdinnertheatre.com .
