Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Returns to SNU

Back by popular demand, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” returns to Southern Nazarene University at 7:30 pm, Thursday through Saturday, April 25-27 and 2:00 pm, Sunday, April 28 in Herrick Auditorium, NW 39th Expressway and Asbury.

“The music is phenomenal! There’s great choreography and the sets are amazing as well as the costumes…The special effects are going to be pushed up a notch also. It’s going to be a great show,” said Leslie Bond, chorus member.

Andrew Lloyd Webber, who also wrote “Cats,” “Evita,” “Phantom of the Opera,” wrote the Broadway hit “Joseph” and many other hit shows. “Joseph” tells the story of Joseph and his spiteful 11 brothers in ancient Israel and includes country and western music, calypso, ballads, rap, and rock-and-roll music reminiscent of the 1950’s. This musical interweaves hardship, faith, endurance, betrayal and forgiveness as Joseph progresses on his journey.

“I like the way the show captures the struggles of Joseph in an entertaining way. This show has a level of profundity that many Broadway shows do not have,” said Jerry Phelps who portrays “Judah,” one of the 11 brothers of Joseph, in the production.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $5 for students. For more information, contact the SNU School of Music at 405.491.6345 or email rspear@snu.edu.
