Mother, Son, and daughters Yaukey are in cast.

The Trinity Players of Waynesboro's Trinity United Church of Christ are celebrating their 40th season by performing the upbeat religious musical, "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat."
The Andrew Loyd Webber Show is based on the book of Genesis, according to actress Kay Yaukey who narrates the play.
"Everything with the exception of two or three sentences is sung," Yaukey said. Debra Hollen is directing the 57 minute musical, which is accompanied by a five-piece orchestra.
"It really revolves around the idea that Jacob had so many sons that each of them represented a part of Israel," she explained.
Joseph, his father's favorite, received a multi-colored coat as a gift from him but ended up a slave in Egypt because of his brothers' jealousy.
Yaukey may not have Jacob's 12 sons but she does have one son and two daughters joining her in the cast.
Donovan Yaukey, 26, plays the lead, Joseph. Sixteen year old daughter Katrina Yaukey, a Waynesboro High School Junior, plays Mrs. Potiphar, and evil temptress. Fifteen year old daughter Suzanna Yaukey, a ninth-grader at Waynesboro Area High School, plays an angel.
Kay Yaukey, a Waynesboro Area Middle School guidance counselor with a long list of acting credits, including tow movie parts and numerous roles at Totem Pole Playhouse in Fayetteville and the Allenberry Playhouse in Boiling Springs, Pa., said she enjoys performing with her children.
"I very musch like working with the girls, I think they're real pros" she said. "For them this is more an avocation than a hobby."
And Yaukey thinks Donovan is well-suited for the role of the dreamer Joseph, who she describes as "a wholesome type character with absolutely no big ego."
Donovan Yaukey, his older brother Dean Yaukey, 30, and their father, Ordean Yaukey, all operate their own entertainment businesses in the area, offering disc jockeys for events Donovan said.
The Yaukeys said performing together on stage isn't uncomfortable for the theatrical family. "The only thing I get annoyed with is singing at home," Suzanna said.
The girls each have their own impressive acting resumes. Katrina most recently played the lead in Cinderella at the high school and has also performed at Totem Pole and Allenberry Playhouses.
Suzanna has played the Allenberry, the Chambersburg Community Theatre, and the Washington County Playhouse.
Katrina started acting in the second grade, she said. Suzanna has been performing since age 6, according to her mother.
Kay Yaukey, who played her first role at 22, called acting "a passion."
"It's both a blessing and a curse because there aren't enough opportunities, " she added.
It may be the first time all four Yaukeys have performed together but it's not the first time Kay Yaukey has acted on stage with her daughters, she said.
Kay played Anne Sullivan to Katrina's Helen Keller in a Trinity Players production of the Miracle Worker. It was a painful experience they both remember.
After the fight scene in the dining room between teacher and student Kay said, "we were both bruised."
But , as Donovan said, "it's just acting."
"Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" will be performed at the church on West North Street, at 7pm, Friday May 13, 7pm Saturday May 14, and 2pm and 7pm Sunday May 15.
Admission is $4 per peron - The Morning Herald, Hagerstown Md
