Casting has been announced for Class Act’s production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which is set to begin performances March 3 at the Nancy Bock Center for Performing Arts Theatre, 3800 S Panther Creek Dr, The Woodlands, TX 77381 in March. Under the direction of Keith Brumfield, the limited engagement will continue through March 5.

The cast will feature Peter McPoland as Joseph and Collin Rue as Jacob (Joseph’s Father).

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical or operetta with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

This was the first Lloyd Webber and Rice musical to be performed publicly (the first, The Likes of Us, written in 1965, was not performed until 2005).

The show has little spoken dialogue; it is completely sung-through. Its family-friendly storyline, universal themes and catchy music have resulted in numerous productions
