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.
Billed as the follow up to Jesus Christ Superstar, the musical 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 despair," 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 directing 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 which displays some of the very best talent in our community," says Vincenti.
