PULLMAN, Wash. — The Broadway hit musical “Joseph and the Amazing
Technicolor Dreamcoat,” originally made famous by Donny Osmond as
Joseph, will be performed at Washington State University’s Beasley
Performing Arts Coliseum April 29 for one show only at 7:30 p.m.
The show is a musical adaptation of the Bible story of Joseph and his coat of
many colors. It features catchy music, great comedy and touching moments in
an energetic story line with interesting characters.
Christie Miller will be directing “Joseph” for her third time. “This show is
touching, funny and exciting all at once. I’ve never directed another show like
it,” she said.
Ken Miller will play the role of Joseph. He is a professional performer who
recently released his first CD and has toured extensively through Canada and
the United States in many productions. His incredible voice thrills audiences
and his performance as “Joseph” is considered by some critics better than the
original Broadway version.
To add to the excitement, local Pullman music teacher Jan Patrick and her
children’s choir, the Jefferson Jaguar Jazz, from Jefferson Elementary School,
were invited to join the production. They will provide backup to Ken Miller
and the cast for a number of songs.
Another unique feature will be the addition of a group of dancers from the
Mid-Columbia Ballet in the Tri-Cities. “They look great,” said the show’s
director said. “They are really going to add some excitement and energy to our
show. It gives me goosebumps to watch them.”
“Joseph,” produced by Stageworks Productions, has performed to sold-out
houses over the past two years. Stageworks was founded by Ken and Christie
Miller in October 1992. Their goal is to bring high-quality professional theater
to regional areas.
Tickets range between $10 and $25, and are available at Beasley Coliseum, all
G&B ticket outlets, by phone at 800/325-SEAT and online at
