Now the Theater Center Extends "Technicolor Dreamcoat"
by Jerome Weeks 18 Jul 2012

We were just saying the other day how musical comedies seem to sell well in Dallas during the summer. Theatre 3 extended Avenue Q, and now it’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the DTC

CTA TBD

We were just talking the other day about how local theater companies seem to have picked up on what the Dallas Summer Musicals has known for half-a-century: Programming musical comedies in the summer makes sense, when all those kids are at home and their parents are desperate to distract them (coming up: Smokey Joe’s Cafe at WaterTower Theatre.) With Avenue Q, Theatre Three has shown this seems to work even with a show too adult for most kiddies.

And now the Dallas Theater Center shows that last summer’s success with The Wiz wasn’t a fluke: It’s current, splashy production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat just got extended a week, through Aug. 12 — the first extension of a show since the DTC moved into the Wyly Theatre.

The full release:

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat Extended through August 12

Dallas Theater Center is thrilled to announce that the run of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat has been extended through Sunday, August 12.  This is the first extension of a DTC production in the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre since the building opened in October 2009.  Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat was originally scheduled to close on Sunday, August 5.  Complete details, including how to purchase tickets, are included below.

AN EVENT OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.

For two generations, this joyful, family-friendly musical has been giving audiences a new appreciation of the Old Testament story of Joseph, the boy dreamer. Sold into slavery by his brothers, he became the ruler of Egypt. In DTC’s tuneful telling of this ancient story, practically every line is sung by the actors and a kids’ chorus, in styles from rock to western to a1920s Charleston.
