Côte Saint-Luc, July 20, 2019 – The Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society is gearing up to remount their sold out, 2018 production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The CSLDS invites one and all to come relive this classic story reimagined on a larger scale, featuring so many iconic songs including “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.” The Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society will bring the familiar characters to The Segal Centre for Performing Arts, featuring a cast of 42 volunteer performers from the community and professional world ranging in age from 8 – 85.
This production won the CSLDS their fifth METAs nomination and their third METAs win for Outstanding Community Theatre. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat sold out 21 shows last summer, selling more tickets than any previous production by the company. Following their successful remounts of Catch Me If You Can (Segal Studio, 2015) and Hairspray (Centaur, 2016), the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society can’t wait to give this production a life on the main stage at the Segal Centre. A big change of note is the lack of intermission this time around. The show will be a tight 1 hour and 15 minutes from beginning to end, perfect for all ages.
“I am so proud of the award winning company we’ve built over the past eight years,” said artistic director Anisa Cameron, who will be reimagining the production for it’s larger venue. This remount of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat offers us an opportunity to produce this show on a scale that will embody the spirit of community theatre, while challenging our Cast, Production and Creative Teams to continue to produce excellent, artistically rich and fulfilling work.
Returning in the title role is Sam Boucher, will literally be flying in for our production from The Stephenville Theatre in Newfoundland and flying back out again to return to his second year in Musical Theatre Performance at the prestigious, Sheridan College. A CSLDS veteran (Hairspray, The Producers, Little Shop of Horrors), he has made our dreams come true returning as Joseph! The show also stars Nicole Arrage (Little Shop of Horrors, Cabaret) and Jeanne Motulsky, whose portrayal of Sally Bowles, in this summer’s Cabaret brought the house to tears, will both be portraying the show’s Narrator. Actors of all ages round out the cast, including a small chorus of children between the ages of 8 and 13.
“I am thrilled that we will be presenting this biblical story and supporting education in our community,” said Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, one of the show’s producers. “Youth are the future of our community and including children in our cast is part of our mission of bringing the joy of theatre to people of all ages.”
The Remount is August 21 – 25 for only 7 shows. Dynamic ticketing is happening right now! Until August 3rd, theatre goers can get discounted tickets at the Segal Centre Box Office. Tickets will go to regular pricing on August 4th. Please visit or call the Segal Centre Box Office: 514.739.7944, 5170 Côte Ste-Catherine
