'Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat' lights up NFHS

Niagara Gazette — A giant student-made golden head is the centerpiece of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” opening today in the Performing Arts Center of Niagara Falls High School, 4455 Porter Rd., Niagara Falls.  

The show is a popular Broadway musical based on the biblical story of the “coat of many colors” with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

“This is the nicest ensemble of kids that we have ever worked with,” said the high school’s theater teacher Kate Muldoon, of the students in the production, including a children’s choir of middle-schoolers. “They have consistently worked together to create a real quality show.” 

Today’s 7 p.m. performance will feature a special opening night general admission ticket price of $5 and a student and senior citizen price of $1.

The show continues at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday with special ticket prices for groups of 10 or more from churches, schools or other community organizations, who can purchase tickets for $2 per person.

General admission tickets on Friday and Saturday will be $8, while tickets for students and seniors will be $7, and tickets for children ages 5-12 will be $6.

The production is directed by Tom Vitello, with vocal direction by Linda Werder.  The orchestra is under the direction of Jack Prybylski and choreography is by Tonya Cowling. 

Also, technical directors are Rich Meranto and John Brinkman, with costumes designed by Veronica Murray.
