Donny Osmond plays Joseph in the iconic role he starred in for more than 2,000 shows across Canada and the U.S. Joining Osmond on stage is Maria Friedman as the Narrator, Joan Collins as Mrs. Potiphar and Sir Richard Attenborough as Jacob.Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat follows the biblical story of Jacob and his 12 sons. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph finds favour with the Egyptian noble Potiphar, but finds himself thrown in jail after rejecting the amorous advances of Potiphar's wife. But Joseph discovers his special powers to interpret dreams, and soon finds himself in front of the mighty Pharaoh. A grateful Pharaoh rewards Joseph handsomely, as Joseph's brothers journey to Egypt to find favour there, and a joyful reunion between the brothers and their father soon follow.Tickets for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat can be purchased at participating theatre box offices and online at www.cineplex.com/events or our mobile site m.cineplex.com.
