Family Musical Theatre to present ‘Joseph’

The Family Musical Theatre will perform “Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s second popular musical show of many colors, at the Bayless High School Auditorium, 4530 Weber Road.

The musical, featuring such favorites as “Any Dream Will Do,” “One More Angel in Heaven,” “Go Go Go Joseph,” “Those Canaan Days” and “Benjamin Calypso,” will be presented at 8 p.m. daily from today, July 13, through Saturday, July 15, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 16.

The production’s overriding message of faith, hope and the redeeming power of love is timeless and as contemporary today as it was nearly 40 years ago.

Tickets cost $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Tickets for children younger than 12 and seniors 55 and older cost $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Tickets for reserved seating for groups of 20 or more cost $8 in advance. For tickets, call (314) 894-0572.

The FMT, the production company for the shows headed by Mike and Diane Hesser of Oakville, has presented musicals for and literally by families for the past 18 summers. Donating part of each year’s production proceeds after expenses, the FMT has contributed roughly $60,000 to $65,000 over the past 18 years to local charitable organizations.

Part of the proceeds from this year’s show will benefit the Support Dogs of St. Louis Inc.
