Get ready for a feast for the eyes (and ears). The coat of many colors gets techno when St. Luke’s ACT UP’s bring “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” to its Dunwoody stage.

Scheduled Nov. 2 - 3 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 4 at 2:30 p.m., the family-friendly musical is produced through ACT UP!, (Arts, Creativity and Theatre Uniting People) and in cooperation with City of the South Theatre.

With great musical numbers including “Any Dream will Do,” the show tells the First Testament story of Joseph who is sold as a slave by his brothers because of his ability to explain people’s dreams, and the fact that he is their father’s favorite son. When the pharaoh calls on him to breakdown a dream, Joseph predicts a famine and is made the pharaoh’s secondhand man. When the famine hits, Joseph’s brothers come to him for relief, not realizing he is the brother they betrayed years before.

Tickets can be purchased through Atlantix at www.atlantaperforms.com.  

Little Shop of Horrors brings campy fun. Meanwhile, Dunwoody United Methodist Church is putting the final touches on its presentation of “Little Shop of Horrors” to hit its stage Oct. 26-27 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 28 at 3 p.m.

A down-and-out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic singing plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite.

This show opens the 10th anniversary season for the Performing Arts and Concert Series at Dunwoody United Methodist Church. Call 770-394-0675 for details.  Tickets are $15 at the door.

 Choices: proving the wrong one could be a doozie. North Springs Charter High School illustrated a message to students via the Choice Bus and there’s little doubt it made an impression on those presented with this consequence of one bad choice.

Built by the Mattie C. Stewart Foundation, the Choice Bus is the first interactive, mobile experience dedicated to keeping kids in school and not dropping out. Its effectiveness? There’s an exact replica of a prison cell on the bus.

The other side of the bus’ choices encourages students to follow their own interests when making career choices. The students leave the bus with a pledge card and a career link and the encouragement to promise themselves to make good choices.

Financial Advice. And who couldn’t use it?

Ed Mendel will return for a third visit to the Marcus Jewish Commmunity Center for a free community forum, “Navigating Financially in an Uncertain World,” tonight at 7:30 p.m.

“In addition to global social and political uncertainly,” said Mendel. “We’re facing a necessary worldwide global monetary self-correction. I’ll make suggestions about how to limit your financial exposure and strengthen your portfolio. I have nothing to gain except the satisfaction that I may have mitigated some losses or facilitated some gains.”

Presentation topics include:

The critical significance of diversifying your investments through multiple vendors;  Why doing nothing can be the most dangerous thing for you financially; Assets offering a store of value. For information, call 678-812-3984 or visit online at atlantajcc.org.
