ASU Gammage will honor veterans, active duty military and their families during a Heroes Night celebration on the opening night performance of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," at 6:30 p.m., Jan. 13.

More than 200 military and their families will be treated to the show and a special reception. All attendees will enjoy a hero’s celebration prior to the show, with special presentations, giveaways and more, in recognition of the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes.

One of the most enduring shows of all time, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" is the irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son.

Directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Andy Blankenbuehler, this new production will feature Broadway/television star Diana DeGarmo as The Narrator and Broadway star Ace Young as Joseph. Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colors, this magical musical is full of unforgettable songs, including “Those Canaan Days,” “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”

Heroes Night is part of the American Airways Military Salute at ASU Gammage and sponsored by the Arizona Lottery, APS, George Brazil Home Services, Macy’s and the Arizona Republic/AZ Central.

The Heroes Night celebration begins at 6:30 p.m., and will be followed by the musical performance at 7:30 p.m. Tickets to the performance start at $20 (plus applicable fees). For more information, please visit asugammage.com.
