Imagine you are a 14-year-old girl on a school trip to Washington, D.C. You hail from a very conservative Baptist section of Texas. As a part of the "educational" trip, your teacher has scheduled a dinner theater performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The churchgoing chaperones approve. But during the production, Joseph, sans his amazing dreamcoat, runs around stage without his shirt on. Teenage girls gasp and giggle and whisper "Hallelujah!" The memory still brings a smile to my lips. I can't promise such an eye-opening experience will repeat itself, but you never know. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat opens for a short run by Kids Who Care this weekend at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy St. in Fort Worth. Tickets are $15 to $18. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For information and tickets visit kidswhocare.org.
