1st Place: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (CVTG)
2nd Place: West Side Story (ECCT)
3rd Place: Mary Poppins (ECCT)

Go, go, go, Joseph — right to first place, where you’ll find the Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild’s June production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The modern spin on the Old Testament story of Joseph and his coat of many colors keeps audiences engaged through inspired performances and tunes in a variety of musical genres, including jazz, hip-hop, country and rock. When the Eau Claire Children’s Theatre puts on West Side Story, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. With music by Leonard Bernstein and classic songs such as “Maria,” “Tonight,” and “I Feel Pretty,” people of all ages enjoyed the classic tale of star-crossed lovers. And in third place is another ECCT production, Mary Poppins, the delightful story of two English kids and their magical nanny. You just can’t go wrong with “Supercalifragilistic-expialidocious,” am I right? —Amanda Foxcroft
