(Gillette, Wyo.) "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, is set to appear at the Cam-Plex this Sunday. But the star of the show may not be totally unfamiliar to some. J.C. McCann, a Rawlins native and University of Wyoming graduate, is headlining the Broadway play as Joseph. Just a year ago, McCann was working the oil fields here in Gillette. With the money he saved he traveled to New York and landed the role of Joseph, to his surprise. (He told the Rawlins Times
that he'd originally auditioned for a different character, Pharaoh.)
The touring version of "Joseph" has been revamped by director Andy
Blankenbuehler, who choreographed Broadway's "Hamilton," which just
recently won the Pulitzer Prize. The touring version of "Joseph" blends
different pop music styles with high-energy dance routines to tell the
Biblical story of the coat of many colors, from the book of Genesis.
"Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" starts at 7:00 p.m. in the
Heritage Center. Reserved seating starts at $50. For more information,
contact the Cam-Plex Ticket Office at 307-682-8802.
