Hicksville Public Schools will present Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at the high school on Thursday, March 14, Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16, with all shows starting at 7 p.m. The Hicksville Repertory Company and 35 third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students from the district’s seven elementary schools round out the cast, which will be accompanied by a full pit orchestra.
The show is loosely based on the biblical tale of Joseph and his coat of many colors. The storyline centers on the evolution of his relationship with his brothers and his rise to power within Egypt. The catchy music covers a variety of styles, including parodies of French ballads, Elvis-inspired rock ’n’ roll, country-western, calypso and others.
High school junior Michael Marmann stars as Joseph, with seniors Mary Assante and Cassandra Rubin splitting the narrator role. Bryan Sarnelli portrays Jacob (Joseph’s father). English and theater teacher Caitlin Cassidy is directing the production.
Tickets are $8 and can be purchased in advance at the high school box office, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. All guests entering the school between these hours will need to sign in and show photo identification.
