In living Technicolor
It’s been a few weeks since Spokane Civic Theatre’s production of “Grease” ended its run, and the season opening production of “Les Miserables” is still a couple months away.
But that’s not stopping Civic from going big with its summer academy production, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
The play, performed by students in Civic’s summer academy program, tells the biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. It was first staged on London’s West End in 1973 and came to Broadway in 1982.
It’ll come to Civic’s main stage Aug. 9-18. Visit http://www.spokanecivic theatre.com for details.
