With a cast of more than 60, CenterStage is bringing one of the best loved Biblical dramas to life with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat presented by Hilliard Lyons, February 21-March 3.
The musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice tells the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. With virtually no dialogue, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is sung in a cornucopia of musical styles, ranging from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll. “This show is guaranteed to make you smile throughout the entire production as it teaches us that faith can overcome dispair,” says Greg Vincenti, the title sponsor of the show.
CenterStage made their mark on the theatre community of Louisville with that same 2004 production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. “This will be the fifth time I have directed Joseph and I’m equally excited for this production as I was for the first,” said John R. Leffert, CenterStage Artistic Director.
“What CenterStage and John R. Leffert bring to its audience is a rousing, joyful spectacular extravaganza by displaying some of the very best talent in our community,” says Vincenti.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has a cast of more than 60, including 40 children. Kate Reedy, who recently played Mimi in RENT and Sarah in Company, will star as the Narrator, and Robbie Lewis, recently seen as Gabe in Next to Normal, will don the coat of many colors and lead this production as the title character, Joseph. Jeremy Moon, who played Joseph in both prior productions, will be featured as a brother and “Angel in Heaven” soloist. Gene Dorf, a longtime CenterStage favorite, will reprise his role as Jacob.
