Society column: “Joseph” production draws a crowd


The 2013-14 production of the Civic Theatre’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat ” delighted audiences once again. The Dec. 21 matinee seated nearly a full house at the Tarkington as the audience enjoyed the all-song story about Joseph as described in the Bible. His sojourn into slavery, ultimate victory and reunion with family was dramatized by eclectic song and dance styles, from the 1960s era to Caribbean-type melodies to French café style ballads.

The family theme was reflected by those in attendance. Lauren Madden from Zionsville, a former NFL cheerleader and currently the Apache Dancer in the show, welcomed thirteen family and friends, including: Lori Elsbury, Joyce Robinson, Emily Greene, Sarah Green, Avery Biggs, Jim Robinson, Kellan Elsbury, Lisa Greene, Austin Madden, Hayden Elsbury, Nolan Elsbury, Logan Greene and her mother Terri Madden.

One of the youngest cast members, Caroline Kerr, who sang in the Children’s Choir, welcomed her mother and father, Julie and David Ker, and brother, James Kerr – all from Carmel.

Mindy Coble of Fishers brought her two daughters, Grace Coble and Abby Coble, for what she described as their annual outing to one of the Tarkington’s holiday shows.

The entire cast of “Joseph” was spectacular with particular nods to Patrick Clements as Joseph, Lacey Kim Kriston as the Narrator and Logan Moore as Pharaoh – all of whom studied or graduated from Butler University School of Music.
