Joseph at the Soo Theatre!

Community members from the Sault and surrounding areas, including Brimley, Pickford, Hessel and Rudyard have come together to bring you the thrilling biblical story of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT. The cast, crew, and production staff have been hard at work for two months and it shows in their high energy performance. This Andrew Lloyd Webber musical takes you on a tour of different music styles with everything from country western to Elvis and calypso not to mention the large Broadway style group numbers.

Local talent Matt Gilbertson will be leading the cast as Joseph, a role made famous by Donnie Osmond. A cast of 40 will join him, including two local performers and STARS students, Lola Kennedy (Narrator) and Christian Perron (Judah and Butler), who will both be departing for New York in the fall. Lola has been accepted on a scholarship to New York’s American Musical and Dramatic Academy to pursue her vocal career, and Christian will be attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts on his way to what will surely be a successful acting career.

Their voices are tuned, the costumes are sewn, the lights are bright, and the set pieces are painted. Director Bob Koger says, "I am thoroughly pleased with the work these outstanding performers have devoted to this show. It will be a long time before you will see another live musical that blows you away like this company will!"

Tickets are on sale now at the Soo Theatre office, 534 Ashmun Street, Sault, Michigan. Show times are 7:30pm July 27-30, 2011, with a matinee show at 2pm on Sunday, July 31st. Call for details on group pricing discounts. 906-632-1930 /
