Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat 

July 21–August 6

Vero Beach Theatre Guild presents the popular musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which features music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. Dating back to the early 1970s, the show enjoyed a revival in 1991 and many others since. It is based on the story of Joseph, son of Jacob, in the Bible’s book of Genesis. Jealous of the multicolor coat Jacob gives Joseph, the youth’s 11 brothers sell him to a group of Ishmaelites. Joseph rises to power and prestige in Egypt and, years later, is reunited with his family.

Centennial Speakeasy

July 29

The historic Sunrise Theatre is harking back to the time of its founding as it celebrates 100 years of bringing a wide variety of live entertainment to the Treasure Coast. Guests will experience an evening at a Prohibition-era speakeasy—entering with a secret knock on a side alley door and then enjoying the jazz, swing, blues, and ragtime sounds of the Fort Pierce Jazz Society. They’ll even be able to visit the Gin Mill, Grand Casino, and Bourbon Bar—set up throughout the theater—without fear of being hauled off to the hoosegow!
