Since its Broadway debut in 1982, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has been recreated by innumerable troupes around the world thanks to its eclectic and catchy soundtrack. In Webber's family-friendly interpretation of the biblical story, Joseph's prophetic dreams and status as the favorite son incite jealousy in his brothers, who sell him into slavery. Joseph then faces many trials, adventures, and spiritual obstacles in Egypt, eventually leading to an audience with the Pharaoh. The show's soundtrack incorporates a grab bag of unexpected genres, from the energetic disco-pop of "Go, Go, Go Joseph" to the Elvis-inspired rock of "Song of the King" and the 1920s Charleston of "Potiphar," inspiring audiences to lindy hop in the aisles and challenge the local Greasers to a drag race.

The Historic Palace Theatre
The Historic Palace Theatre's own in-house production company, Curtain Up Productions, performs beneath the gilded proscenium of a venerable historic auditorium. The playhouse and movie theater was considered the jewel of downtown Lockport on its 1925 opening and still bustles today under the watch of volunteers committed to its preservation.
