Pharaohs, Towers and Remote Controlled Goats!

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 8:48 am

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a show that allows the imaginations of our scenic and property artists to go wild.   Below are photos taken in our scene shop during the past week where our production staff, volunteers and TheatreWings High School Apprentices have obviously been having fun..

First up is a photo is the beginning (the head is still to come) of a remote controlled goat that appears in Act I.  If you remember the story, Joseph’s brothers kill a passing goat and use its blood to stain Joseph’s beautiful coat in order to convince their father that Joseph was eaten by a wild beast.

After the goat incident, Joseph’s brothers sell him to a caravan of passing Ishmaelites who put him in chains and take him off to Egypt. Below is a giant sphinx-like Pharoah’s head that will appear in the Egyptian scenes.

And finally in a sidewalk cafe back in Canaan, where a famine is underway, Joseph’s brothers sing the blues and, as they do, in flies the Tour de Canaan which looks oddly like another familiar tower!

Joseph is full of pure whimsy and off-the-wall humor and obviously our production staff, led by Set Designer Stefanie Christensen and Property Master Mike Christensen, have gotten into the spirit!
