Stage Door brings color to 'Dreamcoat' musical

A crash of drums, a flash of light is a good way to begin the upcoming Stage Door Production “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical with lyrics by  Tim Rice.

The story is based on the coat of many colors story of Joseph from the Bible’s book of Genesis. This was the first Lloyd Webber and Rice musical to be performed publicly. Its family-friendly storyline, universal themes and catchy music have resulted in numerous productions of the show.

“It has fun costumes and sets, it has easy comedy that lends itself to joy and frivolity,” said Stephanie Johnson, Stage Door director. “It’s easy to watch, easy to enjoy, easy to love. This a story about redemption. It’s a story about family. This is a story about transformation; about truth but ultimately it’s a story about forgiveness. Things that we all need in our communities.

“The real key to the heart of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is as simple as one of my favorite lyrics, “Any dream will do.” To me this means exactly what it says, this means that the dreams you have are real, they are special, they are wondrous and they can come true.”

All shows are at the White River High School theatre. Evening shows are scheduled for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and April 21, 22 and 23 at 7:30. Matinees are Saturday and Sunday, and April 23 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $13 in advance for adults; $8 for students and seniors and are available at Radio Shack, The Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce, the Arts Alive! Gallery and online at www.stagedoorprod.org.

Tickets are $15 and $10 at the door. Groups of 20 or more can get tickets for only $5 each.
