What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this Old Testament tale is suitable for grade-school kids. Some things to note: Joseph's solo ballad laments persecution of the Hebrews. Joseph's father is obviously a polygamist. Fully-clothed dancers simulate orgies with mildly suggestive choreography. A sheep is dismembered (though it's clearly a mannequin-like fake). Religious viewers may have qualms about the treatment of the Scripture-based material (God is barely mentioned here). The themes of sibling rivalry, jealousy, and ultimate forgiveness, however, are universal.
