Andrew Arvizu– Andrew was born at a very young age. Despite performing in church choir for many years in adolescence, his only real onstage role was in 5th grade as Winthrop Paroo in a middle school production of “The Music Man.” Realizing he would never top this glimmering achievement, his only real proximity to theater for many subsequent years was within the bounds of running sound for high school shows or playing drums in pit orchestras for Peoria theater productions. Having unofficially assisted with the 2022 Eastlight production of “Joseph,” he was happy to get more involved with the 2023 production as his first onstage role in over 15 years.

Paige Brecklin-Paige has always loved Joseph. She started singing in the children’s choir and this is her second year being one of the wives. She enjoys singing and playing on her switch.

Kayla Breitbarth-Kayla is incredibly excited to be a part of this show! This is her second year being in Joseph and first year as the Narrator! She is absolutely ecstatic to be playing her dream role since she was a kid. She has seen this show many years of her childhood and loves this show with her whole heart. She cannot wait to share her love of the show with you! You may have recently seen her as Casey in First Date(CST), Emma in The Prom(Eastlight), the Jester in Once Upon a Mattress(CST) or Sandy Cheeks in SpongeBob the Musical(PPT). I hope you enjoy the show almost as much as she does 🙂

Carson Childs-Carson is a recent graduate from Illinois State University. He has been in quite a few productions at Eastlight such as Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Singing in the Rain, and Joseph.  He is happy to return to the show after playing Benjamin in 2010, Pharaoh in 2019, and Pharaoh again in 2022. Enjoy the show!

Joseph Clark-Joseph Clark is 11 years old and in the 6th grade at Farmington Central Middle School. This will be Joseph’s third year in Joseph his second year playing Benjamin.

Louis Dalton-I know I said that I would not return as Jacob after last year’s show.  However, after taking home exotic dancers from Eastlight’s Rock of Ages musical, I knew I would be jumping Jehoshaphat at the chance to get onstage and backstage with them.  You can call me Israel and say “hello” to my wife and daughters after the performance.
