The Catholic Youth Apostolate is pleased to announce that the Fr. William Scheid Players will continue their 37th season with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. This early musical collaboration of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber brings the biblical story of Joseph from the book of Genesis to life. Employing a variety of musical styles, the story unfolds with the help of four narrators who guide the audience through Joseph’s struggle and triumph. Entirely set to music, the show moves briskly through the various episodes of Joseph’s tale. Songs, dances, and music relate the story of Joseph and his colorful coat.
This year’s cast of 90 will feature several priests of the Archdiocese, including Fr. Terry Borgerding of St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish in Marthasville, Fr. John Brennell of Seven Holy Founders Parish in Affton, Monsignor Norb Ernst of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Parish, and Fr. Bill Wigand of Regina Cleri, along with dozens of talented grade school, teenage, and adult performers from 25 different parishes in the Archdiocese.
This year marks the group’s 37th anniversary of presenting Broadway plays, reviews, and musicals featuring Archdiocesan clergy and laity to raise funds for the youth programs of the Catholic Youth Apostolate.
