Stage 62 musical opens on Thursday
Stage 62 will present Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic "Joseph and the
Technicolor Dreamcoat" with the opening night slated for Thursday, July
8 p.m. at the Andrew Carnegie Free Library Music Hall, Carnegie.
The musical will continue from opening night through July 25 and show
again from July 29 through August 1 with a cast featuring over 25 local
residents including children, students, and seasoned veterans. All shows
start at 8 p.m.
Joseph was the first show by Andrew Lloyd Webber (Jesus Christ
Superstar, Cats, The Phantom of the Opera) and Tim Rice, and has enjoyed
constant tours and revivals over the last decade.
Set in biblical Canaan, Joseph tells the familiar story and his 11
brothers with hilarious staging and doubtless some of the most memorable
tunes Webber ever wrote (Close Every Door, Any Dream Will Do). It's a
non-stop evening of music and fun suitable for the entire family.
Local cast members are led by Steve Bruno of Carnegie in the title
his new wife Meagan Schu Bruno in the female leading Narrator role, and
James (director of Carlynton High School's musicals) as director.
As always at Stage 62, attendees on opening night will be treated to an
Opening Night Reception with the cast in the lobby immediately following
the show. For ticket reservations, call stage 62 at 429-6262. A children's
choir will join a cast that showcases the younger members of the company.
