(Lancaster, PA) The Fulton Theatre wraps up its historic 160th Anniversary Season with the dazzling Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The production is directed and choreographed by the Fulton’s Artistic Director, Marc Robin and features a cast of 19 and two alternating choruses of 30 local children.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a flashy, modern musical retelling of the Biblical story of Joseph, who was sold into slavery by his brothers. His story of faithfulness and rise to prominence and eventual reconciliation with his family has been a basis of Judeo-Christian theology from ancient times to the present. Told with a tongue-in-cheek sendup of pop culture, Joseph… has proven to be one of the most popular works of musical theatre around the globe.
Starring in the title role of Joseph is Nathan Meyer, who recently appeared as the Production Tenor in the Fulton’s production of Singin’ in the Rain. He is joined by Abby Mueller as the Narrator (Fulton: Ellen in Miss Saigon, Fantine in Les Misérables) and Steve Czarnecki as the Pharaoh (Fulton: Miss Saigon; Nat’l Tour: Beauty and the Beast)
The cast also features Joey Abramowicz (Fulton: Miss Saigon, A Chorus Line) as Judah, Sal Bucci as Dan, Kevin Curtis (Fulton: A Chorus Line) as Simeon, Casey Garvin as Asher,Andrew Kindig (Fulton: Singin’ in the Rain, Hairspray) in the roles of Jacob, Potiphar and Butler, Edward Andrew Lawrence as Zebulun, Gabriel Malo (Fulton: A Chorus Line) as Gad, Alex Pepper (Fulton: A Chorus Line) as Benjamin, Michael Pilato as Reuben, Lisa Rumbauskas (Fulton: Brigadoon, Carousel, Hello Dolly) as Mrs. Potiphar, Nathaniel Shaw(Fulton: A Chorus Line, Oklahoma) as Levi, Cody D. Smith (Fulton: A Chorus Line, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) as Issachar, and Ben Cullen Walker as Napthali.
The ensemble includes Danika Bigley, Whitney Meyer and Liz Schmitz.
Rounding out the company are two alternating children’s choruses, which are simultaneously enrolled in the Fulton’s innovative Production Lab project. As part of the Fulton Academy of Theatre, the Production Labs teach many aspects of stagecraft in addition to the performance opportunity the students receive in the production.
The creative team includes Music Director Aaron McAllister, with scenic design by Robert Andrew Kovach, lighting designed by Paul Black and costumes designed by Colleen Grady.
