Every ten years, for the last two decades, John Schreiber has brought "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" back to the Triton stage.

"It is a crowd pleaser and is musically solid," John Schreiber, the director, explained. "It is a great opportunity for strong male singers - and we have those this year. The kids are working hard and having fun with it."

"Joseph" was written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Weber. It first ran on Broadway as a cantata. Shortly after "Jesus Christ Superstar" and several other similar musicals, it was turned into a musical.

Triton theater fans enjoyed it at their school 20 years ago and again 10 years ago.

"It is a really good story about forgiveness and redemption - with really good music," Schreiber said. "It is fun. It is clever. It is a little bit of everything!"

Regulars at John Schreiber productions will remember the story about Jacob, the father of 12 sons. Played this time by Matthew Kramer the father plays favorites with his son Joseph - giving him a beautiful "coat of many colors." The gift raises the ire of the brothers, who make plans to "do him in."

The music of this play is catchy - the kind that lives on in people's minds for weeks. Kim Jensch and Nan Winsell are the musical directors, with their usual flair.The costuming is - wow, you will have to wait to see it, but you'll be amazed and delighted. That is Marilyn Schreiber's flair.

The matinee will be at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 1. The evening productions will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 3, 4, and 5.
