Saverine ("Phantom of the Opera," "Les Mis") as Jacob and Potiphar, and recent University of Michigan graduate Ryan Vasquez as the Pharaoh.

Thomas W. Douglas is musical director, keyboardist and conductor, and other artistic collaborators include set designer J Branson, costume designers Shawn-Adrian DeCou and Amber Creasser, hair and wig designer Alena Sellers, sound designer Josh Gordon, and lighting designer David Neville.

The show opened Wednesday July 9, and continues through July 13. More information can be found at www.MTWichita.org.
