Oklahoma Christian University will present “Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat” as the annual homecoming musical Thursday through Nov. 9.

Each of the three performances will begin at 8 p.m. in the Hardeman Auditorium on the OC campus, 2501 E Memorial Road.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice co-wrote the musical, which is suitable for all ages. Through the course of the story, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. The musical is set to a variety of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop, and rock and roll.

The production features 67 cast members; 24 are students from OC's music and theater departments, 40 are children from the surrounding community, including children of OC faculty and staff members, and three are OC faculty members.

The musical is directed by 1998 OC graduate Chad Anderson.

Tickets are $15, with discounts for groups, senior citizens and OC students, faculty and staff.

Tickets can be purchased on weekdays at the OC box office or by calling 425-5540.
