Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat Hits the Stage
By: Andrew Warner – Staff Writer
Finally, winter is over and the sun is starting to shine again. What spring means to most people is the sign that school is coming to an end. But before it is over, the year always ends with a big bang from our theater department. This year Centennial will be putting on Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. This show was put on a few years back and the bar was set pretty high. Director Sue Aldridge has very high hopes to not only meet, but also exceed the last performance.
As far as cast goes, our beloved David Kessler takes the lead role as Joseph. The Narrators are Marie Jefferson, Michelle Caneva and Sarah Zola. Practices just started Mid-February and the director and dance choreographer hope to have the show polished and ready to present by April 12th. I got a chance to sit down with Kessler and ask a few questions. When I asked what will make this show better than the any of the other shows in the past, he said “This is my senior year, and after all of the productions I have done over the past four years, I really want to go out strong and do a show that people will always remember here. I think that everybody feels the same way I do even if they aren’t seniors, so with all of the dedication that is being put into the show, there is no way that it couldn’t be one of Centennial’s best.”
I asked Mrs. Aldridge what to expect from the show and what the cast should expect in the next two months of work, and she said “Expect to make some memories.” There will be six chances to catch the show and the tickets will be around five dollars. This will not be one to miss!
