DREAM INTERPRETER — Joseph (Jamie Worrell, right) listens intently as Pharaoh (Michael Poore, center) belts out a song about the dream he is having as they are surrounded by Pharaoh’s staff in Masquerade Theatre’s production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Joseph interprets the dream as seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine. Pharaoh is so pleased that Joseph has been able to tell him what the dream means that he puts him in charge of carrying out the preparations for storing crops during the plentiful years so they can endure the impending famine. This leads to Joseph becoming the most powerful man in Egypt, second only to Pharaoh. The musical, with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, is based on the “coat of many colors” story of Joseph from the Bible’s book of Genesis. The show is being staged at the Capitol Theatre in downtown Union City this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, followed by shows on March 16, 17, 18, 23 and 24. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m., with the Sunday matinees at 2. Katie Tohn will serve as narrator Friday, Sunday and March 17 and 23, with Hillary Lemons stepping into that role on Saturday and March 16, 18 and 24. Three special guests will be acting in the role of Potiphar. They include Tim Shanks this weekend, Joe Ward March 16-18 and Judge Tommy Moore March 23-24. Tickets are $15 each and are currently on sale at Bank3, located at 211 Bill Burnett Circle in Union City.
