Eoniea was our first original musical, it was about a gated hidden city that keeps its occupants in a perpetual state of comfort. Perfection is mandated by the city mayor and no-one who lives there wants to appear to be anything but perfect and happy. The sudden appearance of an outsider named Rouge, creates tension, a love triangle and sets off a series of events which threaten the very existence of the city. The musical covers contemporary youth issues of perfectionism, peer pressure and a fear of failure . The city is a metaphor for todays social network communities where youth often feel trapped in a world where they must appear perfect and happy.
Fraser Valley Youth Musical Theatre's Second production was "Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". The biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes alive in the musical retelling. Joseph -- the favorite son of Jacob -- is blessed with vivid dreams that foretell the future. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph endures a series of adventures which challenge him to his core. Soon he finds himself belonging to Potiphar, whose wife makes advances toward Joseph and ultimately land him behind bars. However, news of Josephs ability to interpret dreams sparks the interest of the hilariously Elvis-like Pharaoh. Soon, Joseph is out of jail and well on his way to second-in-command. Eventually Josephs brothers find themselves unknowingly groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed. As they fail to even recognise him, Joseph tests their integrity. He ultimately reveals himself and the brothers are reconciled. A truly timeless Old Testament tale, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set to a multitude of musical genres, spanning from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock and roll.
