The talented keiki of Performing Arts Center of Kapolei (PACK) are at it again, this time with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which will run from March 22 to April 6.

The musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber is based on the Bible story of Joseph. It tells how young Joseph is sold into slavery by his brothers and how he overcomes great obstacles to become one of Egypt’s most powerful people.

“Audiences of all ages are sure to enjoy the show’s high-energy mix of music and dance genres from ’50s rock to country western,” stated director Meagan Olson.

Thomas Olson, who audiences will recognize as Scarecrow in PACK’s production of Wizard of Oz last year, stars as Joseph.

Other stars include Benjamin Edwards as Joseph’s father, Peter Wulf as the Pharaoh, and vocal narrators Annie Espinosa and Lauren Nagamine. Kapolei High orchestra students will accompany the production with live music under the direction of Nicholas Alexander.

PACK is a nonprofit theatre program for students of all ages that aims to educate them through performing arts experiences.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat takes the stage at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 6 p.m. Thursdays. All shows will be at the Kapolei High School Forum at 91-5007 Kapolei Parkway. All performances also will have food and drinks available for purchase.
