An amazing show
With a crash of drums and a flash of light, the Seaway Valley Theatre Company is ready to unveil “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
The perennial family favourite by Tim Rice and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber will be staged at Cornwall’s Aultsville Theatre February 17, 18, 24 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the Aultsville Theatre, 2 St. Lawrence Dr., Cornwall. A matinée will be staged Sunday, February 19 at 1:30 p.m.
One of the earliest and most popular of their many collaborations, “Joseph” tells the biblical story of Jacob’s favoured 11th son of 12, a boy blessed with the gift of prophecy and interpreting dreams. The show is as vivid and diverse as Joseph’s coat of many colours, with a wide array of musical styles, rich characters, and splashy dance numbers. The show is produced by Jennifer Bellemore and Christiane Taylor, and directed by Brenda Quesnel. Brian McCartney is the musical director.
Immediately following “Joseph,” the troupe starts rehearsing John Cariani’s ever popular romantic comedy, “Almost, Maine,” which will be performed in May. The company will round out the season in June with Katherine DiSavino’s comedy of illicit unmentionables, “Nana’s Naughty Knickers.”
