Theatre Company prepares production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Tickets now available for four shows offered November 19 - 21

Theatre Company's Fall Production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Tickets are now available to the Theatre Company’s fall production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The production is the work of musical theatre giants Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and is based on the biblical story of Joseph, who was sold into slavery by his jealous brothers. Joseph arrives in Egypt, where he eventually rises to become head of the household for a prominent Egyptian captain. Joseph reconciles with his brothers when famine forces them to leave Canaan and search for food in Egypt.

"Choreographer Nicole Zweifel and I have wanted to bring this show to our Theatre Company for years!” said Charlotte Garcia Da Rosa, Theatre Company vocal director and the show’s director. “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is an all-singing, all-dancing experience that brings mature performers and children together. It’s a show that inspires us all to dream big and never lose hope – a message that our youth need to hear in today's world. Joseph is a party on stage, and we can't wait to share it with our community!"

The Theatre Company will offer four performances November 19-21. Tickets are on sale Monday through Friday at the offices of Educational Resource Services (Suite A) in TCOE’s 7000 Doe Avenue facility. Tickets are also available at the L.J. Williams Theater box office one-half hour before each show. Three evening performances begin at 7:00 p.m. November 19, 20 and 21. A Saturday matinee performance is offered at 2:00 p.m. November 21. Tickets are $12 per person for general admission and $20 per person for preferred seating.

Andrew Cantelmi, a freshman at Redwood High School, is starring in the role of Joseph. He is joined by Theatre Company veterans Jack O’Leary, who plays Pharaoh, and Carly Caviglia, who plays the narrator.
