 Never Kiss a Naughty NannyI / Van Wert Civic Theater / 8 PM                                                                 Mr. Broadbent, a developer and builder, has created "THE HOUSE OF THE FUTURE". The house, however, has remained unsold for four years, probably because, as we see in the course of the play, most of the innovations of the future fail to work properly. He has, at last found prospective buyers, Fred and Gladys McNicoll, and invites them to stay in the house. He is determined to offload this huge "White Elephant" - by any means necessary.  For tickets or more information call the Civic Theater box office at 419-238-9689 or visit www.vwct.org

Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat / 2 PM & 7:30 PM                                                      The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph 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. Eventually his brothers 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.
