A Holiday Tradition Returns to the Arvada Center


“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” is back and brighter than ever. The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities has brought back this holiday favorite once again with full force and size.

The story of Joseph and his multi colored coat is a classic told many times. For this production the Arvada Center stays true to the source material and original intent of the show creating a speculator of sight and sound.

Leading the show is Aaron Young making his Arvada Center debut. His Joseph is everything one could want. He is energetic, emotional and colorful.

Sarah Rex reprises her role as the narrator and is a delight from start to finish. Her helpful and sympathetic demeanor sets the tone from the very beginning and carries the show with light and optimism.

After two years away audiences should be glad that the Arvada Center Brought back this stellar production.
