With beautiful handmade costumes, an overload of energy and a cast that is prepared, Lori Kirchner’s interpretation of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” is almost here.

“It’s a modern take on a Bible story,” said Wesley Wilson, who plays Joseph. “There’s a variety of music and great comical as well as moving parts to it.”

The 50-person cast lit up Nov. 18 during dress rehearsal and brought the story to life.

Through humorous songs, well-timed choreography and stern directing from Kirchner, Wilson believe the show won’t fall short of expectations.

“It feels like it’s time to show this to other people,” Wilson said. “It’s a big journey.”

The 2009 dinner theatre includes cast and crew from Ponoka, Red Deer, Millet, Bashaw and surrounding areas.

The production, put together by Klaglahachie Fine Arts, re-tells the story of Joseph form the Hebrew Bible who can interpret dreams and is the bearer of an amazing coat.

After a long journey, the story portrays the message of love and family.

“It reaches lot of ranges of emotion,” Wilson said.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. Nov. 27 and 28 and Dec. 4 and 5; matinees are at 2 p.m. Nov. 29 and Dec. 6 at the Ponoka United Chruch. Dinner will not be provided for the matinee showings.
