Musical to hit stage in two weeks


By Bruce Caldwell - Contributing columnist



Rehearsals for the musical ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat’ have been ongoing the last few weeks. The first night of production will be Oct. 7.


Our audiences are in for a treat in only two weeks, as Director Dan Holland brings his cast of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” to the big stage of the Sampson Community Theater.

This show is a true musical, as there is no dialogue, but only singing of the lines and lyrics and is based on the Genesis story of Joseph and his “coat of many colors.” Ben Casey has the unique honor of having three active roles in this musical. Ben is a senior at Clinton High whose favorite subject is history. He has been in numerous school plays but has appeared on our stage only once before and that was for our recent production of “Cats.” In addition to acting Ben likes to listen to his favorite bands like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

“Joseph” is a lively show with a lot of movement on stage that all can enjoy so get your tickets now at Inkspot, Matthew’s Gifts or at the box office on production days. We are grateful to Progressive Dodge for sponsorship of this show.

We wish to thank Blake Bellanger for completing his renovation of our Green Room as his Eagle Scout project. He was very diligent in completing the work and even had a Talent Show to finance the project.

The 2017 shows that we have scheduled so far is “Mary Poppins” scheduled for February, “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Seussical the Musical”and “Les Miserables.” The other shows are listed below but are subject to change.

Thoughts until next week:

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

If today were the last day of your life, would you be doing what you’re doing?

Real difficulties can be overcome; It is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.
