FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON
By David Rogers
Based on the novel by Daniel Keyes
Flowers for Algernon is the touching story about Charlie, a mentally handicapped young man who gets a life-altering surgery that improves his intelligence that eventually even surpasses the doctors that cured him. But when the surgery has unexpected results, the new life and love Charlie has found is forever changed. This story, while devastating in many ways, shows in God’s eyes every human of every kind of intelligence level has tremendous value and should never be tossed aside. Charlie is an incredible character of depth, joy, and sacrifice.

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice
The biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes alive in the musical retelling. Joseph, the favorite son of Jacob, is blessed with vivid dreams that foretell the future. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph endures a series of adventures which challenge him to his core. Soon he finds himself belonging to Potiphar, whose wife makes advances toward Joseph and ultimately lands him behind bars. However, news of Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams sparks the interest of the hilariously Elvis-like Pharaoh. Soon, Joseph is out of jail and well on his way to second-in-command. Eventually Joseph’s brothers find themselves unknowingly groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed. As they fail to even recognize him, Joseph tests their integrity. He ultimately reveals himself and the brothers are reconciled. A truly timeless Old Testament tale, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set to a multitude of musical genres, spanning from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock and roll.
This show is a wonderful marriage of Joseph’s story with the incredible music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. It is equal parts comedic, tragic, and moving. Get ready for the story of Joseph – told like you’ve never seen before - performed by PCA North Theatre in February 2024 at the Eisemann Center.
