The multi-platinum recording artist will portray Joseph in the theatre company's production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Performances are scheduled for July 31-Aug. 25.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, according to the Playhouse, brings the "Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors to vibrant life in a delightful musical parable. The musical is set to cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso, to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll" that includes the songs “Go, Go, Go Joseph” and “Any Dream Will Do.”
