The Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts will continue its Ford Series Tuesday with a family-friendly production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”

The musical, created by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, tells the Biblical story of Joseph, who went from being sold by his brothers into slavery to rescuing the nation of Israel from a famine.

“‘Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat’ is such a fun way to start the Ford Series,” said Kate Meacham, Ford Center marketing director. “It is a classic story and a great show for the whole family. Everyone should have a great time.”
