Q: What is the synopsis of the musical? 

A: It’s a bible story so it takes place many centuries ago. There’s this man named Joseph who is his dad’s favorite and the youngest of the 12 brothers. He has this talent of interpreting dreams and his brothers are very jealous and don’t like him very much.
