A comedy by Alan Ayckbourn
Directed by Eileen Moushey

In this British comedy set during the "swinging sixties," a complicated series of mistaken identities unravels for a young couple planning to get married.

When the play starts, we meet a young “co-habiting couple,” Greg and Ginny, whose relationship, after only a month, is dwindling into a state of irritability. The naive Greg is hurt and perplexed not only by the unsolicited gifts arriving hourly at their apartment but by Ginny's decision to take off alone one Sunday — supposedly to see her parents in the country.

In reality, Ginny is going to descend on the home of her married boss, Philip, to put an end to their affair. When Greg impulsively follows Ginny, the way is open to a dizzying series of misunderstandings: Greg assumes he is meeting his girlfriend's parents while Philip initially takes Greg to be the lover about whom his own wife, Sheila, has ostentatiously fantasized.

From there, it’s mix-ups and mayhem all around!

AUDIENCE ADVISORY: Relatively Speaking, though written in 1965, is best enjoyed by audiences over the age of 13 due to its adult-oriented themes and plot points.

After suffering a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, 21-year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91-year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment.

A musical
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Directed and Choreographed by Sarah Elaine Bailey
Musical Direction by Sharon Dobbins Alberson

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable!

Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar — but then he finds that thwarting romantic advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail! When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as a rock star!), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command.

Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. 

Now in its 15th consecutive year on the Weathervane Playhouse stage, it is no exaggeration to say that Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has become an Akron holiday-season tradition!

As in previous years’ productions of the musical, the 2013 production will also employ the use of a youth chorus. Students from local schools will perform in rotation with the young actors in Weathervane’s production. This year’s participating schools are Falcon Academy of Creative Arts, Miller South School for the Visual and Performing Arts, and the National Inventors Hall of Fame School...Center for STEM Learning. (Please see this year's schedule of youth choruses on the right side of this page.)

• Cool facts about this show: Since 1972, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has had four major productions in London’s West End theater district and two on Broadway in New York City – in addition to numerous national touring productions in the United Kingdom, the United States and in international locales. The show’s licensing agent, the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, estimates that more than 20,000 productions have been staged over the years by schools and amateur-theater groups.
