'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,' the spring musical at Triton High School this year, is a production that theater goers will surely remember for months, maybe years.

"Some folks dream of the wonders they'll do..."

They will remember Preston Pflaum's performance as Joseph and how he sang himself into their hearts. He has a lovely voice. He carried the character with a sureness unusual for a junior in high school. You couldn't help but feel for him when he was in chains and cheer for him when he came out on top in Egypt.

"Anyone from anywhere can make it if they get a lucky break," he sang - and went on to prove his point.

And they will remember Kasey Redman and Brittany Ellis, who carried the narration along famously and with spirit. That had to be hard work, but they made it look easy.

Matthew Kramer played Jacob, the father of Joseph and his 11 brothers. He was a commanding figure and his sobbing drew sympathy from the audience when Joseph disappeared. It was impossible not to cheer him on.

Alex Finne as Potiphar was hilarious and his scheming, sultry wife was played very well by Kiana Komatsu.

Cameron Marquardt, as Pharaoh, was an outstanding, likable guy who sang out his bad dream with a great Elvis impersonation. - "Thank you, thank you very much!"

Singing their hearts out, plotting, pouting or repenting the brothers were definitely crowd pleasers.

Schrieber worked in plenty of humor directing this talented cast and they seemed to be having a blast.

The music in "Joseph" is absolutely beautiful and fun. Between the young men and women on stage and Nan Winsell and Kim Jensch at the pianos in the pit, they certainly did it justice.

Marilyn Schreiber did another tremendous job with the costumes.

The play was written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Weber and directed by John Schreiber, who is a pleasure to watch work. He gets incredible plays out of Triton teenagers year after year after year.

The program mentioned a free song download available at www.rnh.com/contest/Joseph and enter the code GoGoJo.
