The Rural Cass County Community Theatre, which started this spring in Casselton, N.D., Â is gearing up for the first performance of it’s firstÂ production — Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat — tonight.
It’s an exciting cast, as evidenced by our “Pharoah” Logan McLean and promises to be a very entertaining show.
It’s been a lot of work.Â I think I’ve lost 4 pounds just in the past couple of weeks with allÂ Â the singing and dancing we’ve been doing. Maybe musical theater will catch on as the next hot fitness craze…
But it has also been a lot of fun.Â My husband, Tristin Frank,Â and daughter are also in the show. Tristin is playing Joseph and has been doing a fantastic job.
More thanÂ 150Â people are involved in the production — from performing onÂ stage to volunteering to work behind the scenes.Â We were very impressed and a bit surprised that so many people are volunteering for the first show of aÂ small-town production.Â There are 35 high school students and adults in theÂ cast and 45 children participating in the children’s chorus.
The show is at Central Cass High School in Casselton Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m.Â Tickets are $15 for reserved seatingÂ and $10 for general admission seating in advance or at the door. Tickets can be ordered by calling 701-347-4289 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
