With “a crash of drums, a flash of light,” Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the internationally acclaimed musical/dance extravaganza explodes on Fairhope’s Henry George Bluff under the stars. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s spectacular musical will be presented in an outdoors setting for a first-of-its-kind experience in Fairhope.
The show is co-directed by Eastern Shore natives, David Redman Scott and Erin Langley. It is choreographed by Matthew Kiel. Scott, who now resides in New York City and works for Disney Theatrical Productions on Broadway, is welcomed by the Eastern Shore Rep and its cast members. “Having a guest director who is familiar with working on Broadway productions is an invaluable resource for our students and our company. David brings an even higher level of professionalism and creativity to our show and we are thrilled to offer our final product to the community,” says Langley.
The cast features over 50 community actors, including adults and children. “We’ve got public school art and drama teachers, a vice-principal, lawyers, architects, college theatre majors, the whole gamut. It’s been a fun collaboration with a group of extremely talented people who all share a love for the stage and its magic.” Liam Searcy performs the role of Joseph and Weslyn Walters stars as the Narrator.
