With the recent signing with Visalia Theatre Company and Hutson-Cavale Productions, former dcTalk member Kevin Max makes way in preparing to play in a theatre production. Max will be starring as Joseph in the revival of the Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” The debut telling of Jacob’s son Joseph that was released in the 1970’s has long been a favorite among theater-goers worldwide.

“When we decided to do Joseph, Kevin was the first person who came to mind. His natural charisma and stage presence is compelling enough, not to mention he’s a great singer. We were thrilled when he agreed to be a part of our production,” stated Mike Cavale, one half of the team of Hutson-Cavale Productions. “I think this could open a lot of doors for Kevin.”

“I have always been intrigued by the theatre, and I feel very connected to the persona of Joseph. I always love to challenge myself and broaden the scope of what I do, and I think this could be a very good process for me as an entertainer,” explains Kevin. “Add in the wonderful melodies, the excitement of the theatre and the extreme fashion statements – how could I say no?”

Aside from being Grammy winning band member, and releasing successful projects such as ‘Stereotype Be’ as well as 2 original poetry books, Max is also releasing a new EP the beginning of June titled “Between the Fence and the Universe.”

The show will be playing at the Visalia Fox Theatre in Visalia, CA. Performance dates are as follows:

August 20-23

August 27-29

September 3-5
