FPAC will present the hit family musical, with professional orchestra and special guests, on March 9-11 (with Choir 1) and March 16-18 (with Choir 2) at THE BLACK BOX. Based on the biblical Joseph story, the lively Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical follows the trials and triumphs of Jacob’s favorite son in a high-energy, high-adventure retelling of epic proportions. The musical is entirely sung-through and boasts catchy songs of many musical styles, from country western and calypso to pop, disco and rock ’n’ roll. The endearingly popular Joseph is a colorful and uplifting show for audiences of all ages.
FPAC Executive Director Raye Lynn Mercer and her creative team have ties to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat extending back to the musical’s 1996 National Tour starring Donnie Osmond, when students from Mercer’s Franklin School for the Performing Arts were cast in the production’s three-month Boston run. FSPA students were cast again by Broadway In Boston when tours of Joseph played The Colonial Theatre in 2000 and again in 2005. FPAC presents Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat as part of the company’s 27th season. For more information, call (508) 528-3370.
