The Côte St. Luc Dramatic Society is known for producing high-quality, award-winning shows and the upcoming presentation of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” promises to be no different.
The rock musical, written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, is an adaptation of the biblical story and the production will feature a range of community and professional actors. This musical performance, running form May 30 to June 17, will mark the start of the troupe’s 2017-2018 season.
“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat offers us an opportunity to produce a show that will embody the spirit of community theatre, while challenging our team to continue to produce excellent, artistically rich and fulfilling work," states artistic director Anisa Cameron in a press release.
Cameron, who is directing this production, adds, “For the first time, we will have children in our musical production.”
Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, who is producing the show, says adding children to the cast falls in line with the group’s effort to “bring the joy of theatre to people of all ages.”
The Côte St. Luc Dramatic Society is a community theatre initiative that began in the summer of 2011 in partnership with the city. To learn more, read my article that was published in the Montreal Gazette last year.
