The production then moves to 3DT’s newest home, the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts in Cerritos, CA, October 14–23.

This high-spirited musical, according to press notes, “rocks the stage with the classic Biblical saga of love and redemption in ancient times, as favored son Joseph with his coat of many colors becomes exiled by his jealous brothers, only to find his true calling in the strange new land of Egypt while coming to grips with the power of lies and injustice.”
The creative team also includes assistant director Ryan Ruge, musical contractor Los Angeles Musicians Collective, production manager Terry Hanrahan, associate choreographer Anna White, production stage manager Donna R. Parsons, set designer Stephen Gifford, lighting designer Jean-Yves Tessier, sound designer Julie Ferrin, technical director Jack Meyer, costume coordinator Alexandra Johnson, wig designer Peter Herman and company manager and assistant stage manager David Jordan Nestor.
