'Joseph' to make Tarkington debut for holiday season

INDIANAPOLIS — This holiday season, Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre will celebrate the return of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" Dec. 14 through Jan. 5. It's presented for the first time at the Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts.

"We're thrilled to offer this must-see for the first time in our new home," said executive director Cheri Dick. "'Joseph' is the perfect show for families to enjoy during the holidays."

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's musical adaptation of the well-known Biblical tale of Joseph's "coat of many colors" is both timely and timeless, including universal themes of sibling rivalry, regret, and ultimate forgiveness.

Recent Butler University graduate Patrick Clements will star as Joseph in this season's production.

"Joseph is a role I have always wanted to portray, and the show has been a family favorite for years," Clements said.

The trials and triumphs of Jacob's favorite son are told entirely in song, blending '50s rock-n-roll, country western, calypso, pop, and French chanson, including "Any Dream Will Do," "Close Every Door," and "Go, Go, Go Joseph."

"This production truly allows Civic to use all the space, sound, and visual capabilities of the Tarkington," said producing director Michael Lasley. "We've adapted 'Joseph' to our venues in the past, so we're excited to enhance the production and create something remarkable."

Showtimes are 7 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 2 and 7 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $44 for adults and $34 for children 17 and younger. For more information or to buy tickets, call 843-3800 or visit the website CivicTheatre.org.
