Amy and Wendy with daddy as Joseph
Many years ago, our family became acquainted with the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat by Andrew Lloyd Weber. Mommy and daddy first saw Joseph at the Pantages theatre and enjoyed it so much that they took us to see it as soon as we were potty trained and old enough to sit still long enough to watch it. Mommy made us Technicolor dreamcoats of our own to wear to the theatre. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed watching the orchestra in the pit below the stage. Afterwards, we were invited back-stage to meet Joseph and the cast. Since then, we have become Joseph groupies. Mommy and daddy have taken us to see many performances of this wonderful production across the country.
At one point, we went to see this production at the San Gabriel Civic Auditorium. The actress who played the narrator recognized us from another production which we had previously attended at a different theatre. During performance she sang directly to us as we sat in the front row. It was a lot of fun. After the performance, she took us back to meet the cast. At one performance at Pepperdine University, daddy was even invited back-stage to try on the coat of many colors.
Now, we have passed our coats on to our younger sisters, Emily and Kelly. The tradition continues....
For those you who may be unfamiliar with the story or the musical, it is a truly delightful story for all ages.
Here are some photos we have taken at some of the many different performances we have seen!
