Columbus High School Theatre will present Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Nov. 9 at 7 and Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Nantkes Performing Arts Center at CMS. Tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for students. C-Stamps and senior passes will be accepted. The doors open a half hour before the show.
The musical is an imaginative retelling of the biblical story of Joseph and his eleven brothers. Joseph is the favorite son of Jacob, and his brothers are jealous when Jacob gives Joseph a multicolored coat to set him apart as the rest of the brothers. If that weren’t enough, Joseph has dreams that seem to point to his destiny being far beyond that of his brothers. Fed up with Joseph and his dreams, the brothers decide to take action.
With nearly forty cast members and fifty other students involved backstage or playing in the orchestra, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is sure to entertain the whole family. The show features eye-catching sets, exciting choreography, and catchy songs that you will be left singing for days.
There will be a fifteen-minute intermission, during which baked goods will be sold to fund future shows.
