About the Show
Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar -- but then he finds that thwarting romantic advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail! When news of Joesph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as a rock star!), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command.
Returning to the Weathervane stage for the 18th season of this Akron holiday-season tradition, Joseph is high-energy, entertaining family fun like no other.
