Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Children on Stage, Garland, Texas
The costuming was especially brilliant when viewed against the completely
anachronistic set (floor-mounted cutouts of Nefertiti serving as backdrops for
costumes with wide-legged pants and even wider collars), designed by Joseph
Cummings and built by Master Carpenter James Cox.
Having before seen sets designed by Mr. Cummings, I was not at all surprised by
the intricacy of his design for Joseph.
The use of color was paramount to the design of this set, and also to the
lighting, designed by Catherine Montgomery and executed by KC Jansson.
The curtain backdrop was designed and painted by Mr.
Cummings and sewn by Deborah Gerard to mirror the design of Joseph's coat, a
rather simple idea that beautifully tied the set together.
