     Who knew a bible story could be so entertaining. It’s the story of hopes and dreams, family and kings. The 1st musical by Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice, Joseph has been a hit since 1968. Every decade, a new Joseph brings to life through song the classic story of a man who followed his dreams that delights all ages.

 The day begins with 9:15am FREE Parking and Breakfast Buffet at the Center. At 9:45am our Coach BUS (restroom on board) leaves for Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois. At 11:15am we arrive and are seated in the Dining Room. At 11:30am it’s DINNER (Please choose one entrée at time of Registration): 1) Bistro Steak w/Bordelaise Sauce and Roasted Shallot Mashed Potatoes (Gluten Free); 2) Herb Roasted Chicken Breast w/Roasted Shallot Mashed Potatoes or 3) Vegetable Linguine w/Pomodoro Sauce, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Broccoli, Peas and Tomatoes (Vegetarian). All 3 entrees include Soup du Jour (could be chicken noodle, cream of mushroom, beef vegetable); Rolls & Butter, Chef’s Special Dessert (we’ve had cherry pie, apple strudel, ice cream sundae) and choice of Coffee, Decaf Coffee, Hot Tea or Iced Tea.

 At 1:30pm it’s the family favorite musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. It’s the story of Joseph, the dreamer son of Jacob who has 12 sons in all. Joseph is the favorite and gets a wonderful “Technicolor Dreamcoat” from his father (It was red and yellow and green and brown…) causing jealousy among the brothers who sell him to traders on their way to Egypt.

While in prison he interprets dreams and comes to the attention of Pharoah, the King who’s having dreams and Joseph tells him the fate of Egypt. Pharoah puts Joseph in charge who saves Egypt along with his father and brothers who come to him for help and the boy who dreamed saves the day.

 There’s lots of music as the story unfolds. The production numbers are unique as each is sung in a different style – Country Western, Calypso, French Ballad, 1920s Charleston, Jazz, 1950s Sock Hop and Elvis-inspired Rock and Roll. It’s a story for all time of hopes and dreams and faith and a boy who loved his coat of many colors…

 At 4:45pm we leave for Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha. It really is a castle with drawbridge and all. Inside are good things from Wisconsin and around the world including 100s of cheeses, meats, sausages, bakery, condiments, candies, jams & jellies, cookies, Packers/Brewers/Bucks/Badgers items and more.

 At 6pm we leave with Treat Bag & Beverage and Raffle Prizes arriving in Milwaukee at 8pm. (Compare the cost of our trip with other trip providers and see how much more you get for your money.)
