The Rock Valley College (RVC) Studio Theater season will kick off Sept. 25-Oct. 5 with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ’n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
Two more classic plays will follow during the 2013-14 RVC Studio Theater season with The Wizard of Oz (Dec. 4-14) and Fiddler on the Roof (Feb. 5-15, 2014). Finally, a great Studio tradition continues as the season wraps up with an Agatha Christie play, Akhnaton (March 19-29, 2014).
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Wizard of Oz and Fiddler on the Roof have all previously been performed on RVC’s Starlight Theatre stage, but this season will mark the first time any of them has been brought to life on the RVC Studio stage. Because of the size and scope of these three shows, they have only previously been performed on Starlight’s larger stage. Thus, Director Mike Webb has labeled 2013-2014 the “Impossible” season at RVC Studio Theater.
Show times are 8 p.m. nightly with additional 2 p.m. matinees every Saturday and Sunday for each play’s run. Individual tickets are $17 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. Season tickets are also available for $45 for adults and $40 for students and seniors. For tickets, call (815) 921-2160 or go to rvcstarlight.com.
