Let’s Go Go Go with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Don’t miss this high energy song and dance summer spectacular LIVE on the Town Theatre stage. Disco, calypso, rap, country and western and rock ~ you’re sure to enjoy this musical melting pot written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. One of the world’s most widely recognized and performed musicals and it’s right here at Town!
Based on the book of Genesis, this exciting musical follows the story of a young man with a knack for having prophetic dreams. He incurs the jealousy of his brothers who sell him into slavery in Egypt where his talents eventually save the country from famine and secure him a position as Pharaoh’s right-hand man. In due time, he is reunited with his now contrite and guilt-ridden brethren.
Reprising the title role from 2012 is Scott Vaughan (The Music Man) aided by the show’s Narrator shared by *Kristina Kusa (Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins) and ⁺Caroline Quinn (The Music Man, White Christmas).
