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.
