Giant cast bringing ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ to life at Kiski

Kiski Area High School will perform “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” as its spring musical March 21-24.

The musical operetta, written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Weber, follows the story of dreamer Joseph, one of 12 boys and favorite son of Joseph.

Kiski musical director Robert Capanna describes the plot, based on the story of Joseph from the book of Genesis, as “biblical, but not religious.”

“It’s got a little bit of fun for everybody and is an all-ages show,” he says.

Jacob gifts Joseph with a fancy multi-colored coat that incites jealousy from his brothers.

“ ‘Joseph’ has always been one of my favorite shows,” Capanna says. “I really like to be able to explore a familiar show from different angles. The musical is 50 years old this year and was Andrew Lloyd Weber’s first musical.”

This year’s cast is mega-sized — more than 120 students from grades throughout the district will perform.

Kiski will present “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at 7:30 p.m. March 21-24. Admission is $10 for reserved seating. Details:

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
