Andrew Lloyd Webber’s epic musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns to St. John’s United Church tomorrow and Saturday.

Community actors are staging the classic musical Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.. The community group is presenting the show in arrangement with the Musical Company, LP.

Returning to reprise their roles from the 2014 St. John’s production will be Joey Herbison as Joseph and Alison Hess as the Narrator.

Both Joey and Alison are now based in the GTA working in the music industry. Christopher Coyea will be taking on the role of Pharaoh.

The St. John’s United Church Choir, as well as other community musicians and singers, will be rounding out the cast and crew of the musical.

Brockville and District Music and Performing Arts Hall of Fame members Anne Landon (musical director) and Harold Hess (director) will be lending their years of experience to this production, which will be the third occasion on which Landon has organized the musical at St. John’s.

Tickets are selling for $20 each, with students at $15.

Tickets will be available at the door and will be available by phoning St. John’s United Church (613-345-5824) on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon.

While the church at Park and King Streets hosted a production of Joseph in 2014, this time actors will be performing on the church’s specially created theatrical stage, which has become a secondary arts venue in the community.
