The musical tells the Biblical tale of Joseph and a series of his adventures after he is sold into slavery by his brothers.

“The fast pace and great variety of musical styles, plus the colorful atmosphere, make this a show that is incredibly great fun for the performers and audience alike,” said Lou Ursone, executive director of Curtain Call.

Debra Lee Failla directs the show, a production she also directed for Curtain Call in 2000.The cast of 35 local actors includes Mike Okulski as Joseph and Laura Blackwell and Claire Kenney sharing the role of narrator.

"I’ve been encouraging our actors to bring their own personalities into their characters and, believe me, it’s adding a whole ‘nuther dimension to the show,” Failla said in a statement.

The production will run from Nov. 16 through Dec. 16 with shows on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. Ticket prices are $29 for adults, $22 for senior citizens and $14.50 for students and children. All Thursday tickets are $20.
