KATHARINE SCHROEDER PHOTO | Brett Chizever plays the title role in ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,’ which debuts tonight at the North Fork Community Theatre in Mattituck.

The North Fork Community Theatre will present ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,’ an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical with lyrics by Tim Rice, tonight through Sunday from March 7 to 24 at its location on Old Sound Avenue in Mattituck. The family-friendly musical is based on the story of Joseph from the Bible’s Book of Genesis. The show has little spoken dialogue; it is completely sung-through and features universal themes and catchy music.

A narrator guides the show, encouraging children to dream while she tells the story of Joseph, another dreamer, who exhibits a talent for interpreting dreams and telling the future. Joseph’s brothers are envious of his coat of many colors, a symbol of their father’s obvious preference for him.

Evening shows begin at 8 p.m., with a free pre-show reception on Thursdays, and Sunday matinees start at 2:30 p.m. Jessica Raven is director and choreographer, Jennifer Kennedy is musical director and Mary Motto Kalich is producer/assistant director. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at nfct.com or by calling 298-6328.
