Forget your boring old narrators – Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Rose Center Theater is bringing in the charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent! These aren't just voices whispering in your ear, they're full-on glitter grenades ready to explode a rainbow of musical magic across the stage. And in The Rose's upcoming live theater production, this vital role isn't entrusted to one, but to three powerhouse storytellers, ready to guide your imagination through a kaleidoscope of musical magic.
First, let's welcome Colette Peters, a woman whose voice has traversed opera houses, world premieres, and regional stages, mesmerizing audiences from "Little Shop of Horrors" to "Mary Poppins." As Donna Sheridan in "Mamma Mia!" she held a family on her back, and as Mary Poppins herself, she practically flew. But in "Joseph," Colette becomes something else entirely: a captivating chameleon, shifting effortlessly between witty commentary and soulful ballads, guiding you on Joseph's journey with the wisdom of an elder and the playful spark of a child.
Then, get ready for the infectious energy of Kristin Caputo, a Rose Center Theater veteran whose credits read like a who's who of Broadway behemoths. She's been the prim Ms. Banks in "Mary Poppins," the effervescent Belle in "Beauty and the Beast," and the belting Mary Magdalene in "Jesus Christ Superstar." Kristin's Narrator isn't just a storyteller, she's a cheerleader, a friend, an arm you can drape over and sing along with as Joseph navigates the peaks and valleys of his technicolor destiny.
Finally, brace yourselves for the hurricane of talent that is Selena Ceja! Don't let her youthful glow fool you, this vocal powerhouse has already slayed the stage as Wednesday Addams and rocked the socks off Rent. In Joseph, Selena's your confidante and conscience, offering a modern twist on ancient themes with a twinkle in her eye and enough moves to make Elvis Presley jealous. Think sass with a soul, wisdom with a shimmy, and a voice that'll shake your core while your feet tap to the beat.
These three remarkable performers aren't just narrators, they're the embodiment of the very themes woven into Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. They are family, bound by their passion for storytelling and their shared love for this timeless musical. They are the threads of faith, each interpreting Joseph's journey through their unique tapestry of experience. And they are the explosion of creativity, ready to paint the stage with their vibrant presence and powerful vocals.
So, when you step into the Rose Center Theater from February 16th to March 3rd, prepare to be not just entertained, but transported. Prepare to have your heartstrings tugged by Colette's wisdom, your spirit lifted by Kristin's joy, and your soul shaken by Selena's fire. Prepare to witness three master storytellers become living, breathing extensions of the music, the lyrics, the very story itself. Join us at the Rose Center Theater, where dreams don't just come alive, they explode in a technicolor supernova of talent! See you there!
