Barden, Haddix perform with Harding University

By March 28, 2014 News No Comments

Lilli Grace Barden and Hannah Haddix, students at CrossPointe Preparatory and residents of Searcy, join other local children and Harding University students in the University’s production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” The show is being performed as part of the University’s 2012 Homecoming weekend.

Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, “Joseph” brings to life the biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors. The musical uses a narrator to present the story of Joseph, presented as a “dreamer,” and traces his life as he receives the coat, is sold into slavery by his brothers, and later rises to prominence in the government of Egypt. As in the biblical narrative, Joseph later interprets Pharaoh’s dreams, has a contentious reunion with his brothers when they journey to Egypt to buy food, and is eventually reunited with his father.
