Coming Soon... Broadway Magic in Thousand Oaks!

Hi guys. I hope you're all doing well. I'm super excited to be announcing that 5Star Theatricals' production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is coming to Thousand Oaks next weekend!

For those of you that don't know about the show is a musical by by the legendary Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice telling the story of Joseph, son of Jacob, as told in the book of Genesis. It has been made worldwide famous by performances by Donny Osmond and Jason Donovan in addition to Patrick Cassidy in the 2005 US national tour. And what a perfect segway to my TOP FOUR reasons you need to see this production ----

#1 - Patrick Cassidy as the Pharaoh
As I mentioned earlier Patrick Cassidy had previously performed as Joseph in 2005. For those of you that don't know, he is one of the talented Cassidy brothers, son of the late Jack Cassidy and Shirley Jones. Need I say more? It has not been revealed yet whether Patrick Cassidy will be singing "King of my Heart", a number written for the 2007 London revival.
Patrick Cassidy does know how to sell a song, and blows the dust off the rafters singing “Close Every Door to Me.”

#2 - Dave Scott as Choreographer
Dave Scott is perhaps best known to the general public as one of hip-hop's best choreographers on the hit TV show So You Think You Can Dance. He is sure to bring a refreshing new take on favorite numbers such as "Go, Go, Go Joseph" and "Benjamin Calypso".

Please do yourself a favor and check out the below video clip of Courtney and Joshua performing a hip hop routine on So You Think You Can Dance by Dave Scott...

#3 - Marissa Margolis is in the Kid's Chorus
For those that have been following my blog for a while (thank you!) You have probably heard me gosh at one point or another about the lovely and extremely talented Marissa Margolis. I truly believe that this young lady is going to be going places so one day you might be able to show off your program of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and say that you saw her when she was wowing folks in the Kid's Ensemble.

#4 - 5-Star Theatricals (formerly Cabrillo Music Theatre) is known for delivering star quality productions to the Ventura County
I hope no one is confused by the change of name because this is still the same great board of directors and team of creative artists who have brought you such gorgeous productions as Sister Act and Mary Poppins. Without having seen any rehearsals or heard any sound clips I am 100% confident this will be in another smashing hit!

So grab your tickets at Either the box office, Ticketmaster or GoldStar (where you can find discounted tickets)! There are only 9 shows so hurry and don't miss out! You won't regret it!

See you at opening night!

Tickets: $35-$83
Location: Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, 2100 E. Thousand Oaks, Thousand OaksCA 91362
Parking: $8 (cash only)
Appropriate Ages: All ages! (There will likely be one suggestive dance scene between Potipher's Wife and Joseph)
