Joseph the Dreamer, whose final show would have been on August 7, 3pm, has added one more show to its 3-week run.

Trumpets Inc. President Butch Jimenez has just announced that the closing show will now be on August 7 at 8pm. The production will now have had 10 shows instead of 9.

As previously announced, the musical’s opening weekend was postponed due to covid protocols. Ticket holders of the July 15 8pm, July 16 8pm and July 17 3pm shows can now be used for the August 5 8pm, August 6 8pm, and August 7 3pm shows respectively.

Written by Freddie Santos, based on Cam Floria’s cantata entitled Dreamer: What Really Happened to Joseph, Joseph the Dreamer is based on the biblical story of Joseph, the 11th son of Jacob.

Sam Concepcion plays Joseph, alternating with Neo Rivera who also plays the role of Judah. They are joined by returning featured cast members Kayla Rivera as Asenath, Carlo Orosa as Pharaoh, Audie Gemora as Jacob, and Bituin Escalante as Joseph’s mother, Rachel. Gary Valenciano and Carla Guevara Laforteza have also joined the cast as Jacob and Rachel, alternating with Gemora and Escalante. Topper Fabregas, in a last minute casting addition, played Pharaoh for the July 22-24 weekend.

Also in the cast are new and returning cast members– Alys Serdenia (Mrs. Potiphar), Aldo Vencilao (Potiphar), Eggo Velasco and Mateo Jimenez (Benjamin), Matthew Barbers (Simeon), RJ Dela Fuente (Reuben), Elai Estrella and Eli Luis (Little Joseph’s), Edrei Tan (Asher), Renz Bernardo (Gad), Paul Valdez (Dan), Carlos Canlas (Levi), Jim Ferrer (Naphtali), Dan Delgado (Issachar), Diego Aranda (Zebulun), and Anton Posadas (swing), and Justine Narciso, Samantha Libao, Kiara Dario, Coleen Paz, Kathleen Francisco, and Jom Logdat as members of the ensemble.
