An amaz­ing show

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

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.”

Ad­vance tick­ets for all shows can be bought at www.svtc.thet­ick­ or at the SD&G United Way/Cen­traide of­fice, 405 Fourth St. W., Corn­wall.
