Arts Focus: Arlington theatres collaborate at Lubber Run Amphitheater

This column is sponsored by Arlington Arts/Arlington Cultural Affairs, a division of Arlington Economic Development.

A trio of Arlington’s theatrical ensembles join forces for a special event: join Avant Bard Theatre, The Arlington Players and Encore Stage & Studio for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (lyrics by Tim Rice and Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber), a special collaborative production as part of the Free Summer Concert Series at Lubber Run Amphitheater, at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, August 5 and 6, and on Sunday, August 7 at 6 p.m. Admission is Free.

This fantastically fun and energetic musical will transport you to ancient times where dreamers and destiny collide. Featuring talented local performers, including a children’s chorus, it’s a theatrical experience for the entire family not to be missed!

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of The Really Useful Group. The production is part of the Lubber Run Amphitheater Free Summer Concert Series, presented by Arlington Arts in partnership with the Lubber Run Amphitheater Foundation.

“The cultivation and celebration of community lays at the heart of Avant Bard’s mission. It is a joy for us to engage this collaboration with this production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat,” says Avant Bard Theater’s producing partner DeMone Seraphin, who is directing the production. “How exciting it is to watch artists at various levels of experience come together to create something that promises to be fun and to bring joy to the Arlington community.”

“Encore is so excited to be a part of this collaboration!”, says Encore Stage & Studio’s Sarah Duke, who is a co-producer of the show. “We especially value the opportunity for our students to work alongside adult performers in this fun summer show!”

The seeds of this collaboration were sown last fall in the Spotlight Series: a showcase of Arlington-based theater and dance ensembles presented by Arlington Arts. As most of the participants usually performed at indoor ticketed events to their established audiences, the Spotlight Series allowed them to reach an entirely new audience with their artistry. This production takes things to the next level, fostering collaboration between three of Arlington’s longest tenured theatrical arts organizations.

“The Arlington Players is delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with the local theater community in bringing this fun-filled production to the residents of Arlington County!”, notes Jasmine Jones, the Executive Producer for The Arlington Players.
