JERSEY CITY, N.J. |  (NJCU) and the NJCU Center for the Arts, in collaboration with the NJCU Department of Music, Dance and Theatre, will present a reimagined version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Directed by Professor Marc G. Dalio 鈥 NJCU鈥檚 Coordinator of Musical Theatre and Artistic Director of NJCU鈥檚 Center for the Arts 鈥 this exciting musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice will have a limited two-weekend run beginning Friday, April 5, at the Margaret Williams Theatre located inside NJCU鈥檚 Hepburn Hall, 2039 Kennedy Boulevard, 香港六合彩资料图库 City, N.J.

Tickets for the performance are $25 for general admission seats and $15 for students and seniors, and can be purchased at:  

Weekend one shows are Saturday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 7 at 3 p.m. Weekend two performances are scheduled for Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 14 at 3 p.m. 

The show is set in a museum exhibition. In the biblical land of Canaan, Joseph, the favorite son of Jacob, is gifted a multicolored coat, to the jealousy of his 11 brothers. They in turn, plot to cleverly rid themselves of Joseph, sending him on a journey that sees him enslaved and eventually jailed. However, Joseph reveals an extraordinary ability to interpret dreams, which catches the ear of the Pharoah, who uses Joseph鈥檚 predictions to save Egypt from a famine.   

Now, as Pharoah鈥檚 number two, Joseph again finds himself in the presence of his family, who have come to Egypt looking for food and shelter. Not recognizing Joseph, he uses the opportunity of their reunion to teach the brothers a lesson and allows them to demonstrate their newfound selflessness. Eventually, the reunion and conclusion become a happy one for all. 

Dalio notes: 鈥淲e imagine the story of Joseph as an uncovered lost treasure, brought to our theatrical museum via hieroglyphic storyboards and various artifacts translated into vibrant life by the museum鈥檚 curator, our Narrator.  This also serves to remind our audience of the countless dreamers and wonders found in our galleries and museums.鈥
