About Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (often colloquially known as Joseph) is a sung-through musical comedy with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on the character of Joseph from the Bible's Book of Genesis. This was the first Lloyd Webber and Rice musical to be performed publicly; their first collaboration, The Likes of Us, written in 1965, was not performed until 2005. Its family-friendly retelling of Joseph, familiar themes and catchy music have resulted in numerous stagings. According to the owner of the copyright, the Really Useful Group, by 2008 more than 20,000 schools and amateur theatre groups had staged productions.
There once was a special place where friends came together to make magic....
Dan and Mary Ann Morrow have spent years teaching and creating magic! While still teaching theatre for Plano ISD, they started their first dance studio where they raised their daughters and taught hundreds of kids about dance and theatrical performance.
After their children were grown they wanted to share their love of theater with the community and opened The Stage Door Theatre in Plano, TX. Stage Door was a true community where parents and children created shows that spread the love and joy of theatre. Performers perfected their craft of acting and singing. Members built sets, created props, and ran lights to produce shows that brought joy and happiness to the patrons and the performers.
During the pandemic the theatre struggled to survive without the ability to come together to rehearse or perform, and so the theater was forced to close. As things began to get back to normal, the theater community gathered and together we realized that our theater was more than just a building. The magic of the theatre came from the people, their passion for the performance, and joy for each other. From the devastation of losing our theater, we have emerged renewed.
We invite you to come join us and be a part of our theater family.
