Lubbock Moonlight Musicals presents: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
August 9-10 2013

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. 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 where thwarting advances from Potiphar’s wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph’s gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ’n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

Window on the West: Views from the American Frontier
Aug 11 - Nov 13 2013

Where: Texas Tech Museum of History 3301 4th St, Lubbock, TX 79409


Cost: FREE


This exhibition is a trove of 60-some fascinating images rather than a collection of only well-known names. Sharing the spotlight with Bierstadt and Bodmer are works by anonymous or lesser-known artists who had in common one critical feature: they were among the first Europeans to cast an eye over the places depicted. These works speak to the truthfulness of first impressions and the artists’ attempts to capture both accurate form and a sense of place in the same work.

Lubbock Moonlight Musicals presents: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
August 23-24 2013


The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. 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 where thwarting advances from Potiphar’s wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph’s gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ’n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
