The musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a retelling of the Old Testament story of Joseph, a favorite son of Jacob. Joseph's brothers are not to happy about this and have him sold away. This leads to a series of dreams, revenge, prosperity, and famine that will take place within the next few years.
John Leffert directed Joseph, which features Robbie Lewis as the title character and Kate Reedy as the Narrator.
Following Joseph, Centerstage will present Avenue Q. The production will take place in April.
