Elvis and Elton at Erin!

Our own Stushie (John Stuart), who has kept this blog going, sent me a joyful note about his congregation, Erin Presbyterian Church in Knoxville. The Erin Youth Players did a production of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Check the slideshow! Here is what John said about it:
Our director had the cast in disco era/ punk rock costumes...Jacob looked like Elton John. Our "Joseph" was also African American. We're very proud of the diversity of the cast.

This must be the scene of digging the pit for Joseph.

Let's see how smart y'all are. Here some pics from the performance. You guess what part of the Bible story the scene features:

Picture #1:
OK, there is Elton John (Jacob) with Joseph...

Picture #2:
And Elvis. Let me guess, Elvis is Pharaoh?

Picture #3:
This is one colorful performance. Are these the hungry Hebrew children?

Picture #4:
They are cute. But I am stumped. It would probably help if I knew the play.

Picture #5: OK, I don't remember any cowboys or cowgirls in the Bible. This must be the Scholar's Version.

So, name the scene! Post your guesses below!
Thanks, Stushie! Looks like those Presbys had a great time! This was really well done and I like the slideshow on the webpage!
