Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Many high school students are busily preparing for this year’s musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Coming to the Kimberton stage on March 5, 6, and 7, the biblical story of Joseph is told through a wide variety of musical styles. The story of Joseph, his coat of many colors, and the ever changing relationship he has with his father and brothers, is one that every Waldorf student hears in Third grade. It is a story of love, jealousy, hate, betrayal, forgiveness, and ultimately reconciliation. It is a story and a production that the KWS Musical Committee would recommend for families and children from Grade 3 and up.
Many students, parents and faculty are helping with all aspects of this production. In addition to their work on stage, many of our high school students are helping to lead work in costume design and production, set design, and set painting. Middle school students are an integral part of the orchestra and the tech crew. In conjunction with the story of Joseph and their recent Measurement block, the Third grade is working together to make Joseph’s coat of many colors.
James Corkum, ’04 alum is once again directing the production. Music teacher Elisabeth Tarsio is teaching the music and conducting the orchestra. Angie Foster is the assistant director and parent Susan Fudala is choreographer. Alumni parent Kris Keller has returned to produce her 8th KWS musical.
The cast is very enthusiastic about this production’s story, humor and music. We look forward to sharing Joseph with the community.
