A holiday tradition in Lakewood is back for the entire month of December.  Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat opens at the Beck Center’s Mackey Main Stage on December 2nd and runs through December 31st.  The show is a humorous retelling of the biblical story of Joseph of Canaan and includes musical stylings that appeal to all tastes—from reggae to country, Elvis and more.  “Joseph is that rare entertainment that appeals to audiences of all ages,” said Beck Center Artistic Director Scott Spence.  “We are thrilled to bring back this box office record breaker from last season,” he continued. “Audiences raved over the amazing talent on Beck’s stage and reveled in the outstanding production values.”  Many original cast members are returning this year, including Equity actors Josh Rhett Noble as Pharaoh and Tricia Tanguy as the Narrator.

Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m.  Special Saturday matinees are planned for December 10th and 17th. Weeknight performances are scheduled on Wednesday, December 28th and Thursdays, December 22nd and 29th.  A special New Year’s Eve show will take place at 7:30 p.m. on December 31st.   Tickets are $28 for adults, $25 for seniors 65 and older, $17 for students and $10 for children 12 and under.  There is a preview night on Thursday, December 1st.  Tickets for the preview are $10.  For more information or to order tickets, visit www.beckcenter.org .
