NDCL presents ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’
Joseph and his colorful coat will come to life as Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin School’s Amateur Production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” opens on Feb. 28 at 7:30 p.m. in NDCL’s Pat and Janet O’Brien Center for the Performing Arts.
Presented through an exclusive arrangement with R & H Theatricals and The Really Useful Group, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical parable follows the Biblical story of Joseph (senior Joseph Frankhauser of Kirtland), a prophetic dreamer.
Joseph is taken to Egypt after being sold into slavery by his 11 brothers: Reuben (senior Mark Mullinger of Chardon), Simeon (junior Sean Mucha of Cleveland Heights), Levi (junior Anne Schnell of Chagrin Falls), Napthali (sophomore Mandy Spangler of Chester Township), Issachar (junior Cole Prots of Newbury Township), Asher (senior Austin Drozin of Concord), Dan (junior Brian Nelson of Concord), Zebulon (sophomore Nina Berschig of Newbury Township), Gad (junior Andy Chom of Montville Township), Benjamin (sophomore Chandler Brandetsas of Mentor), and Judah (sophomore Julia Lesko of Chester Township).
His brothers are jealous of Joseph’s status as their father’s (junior Nate Ullman, Newbury) favorite son. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, find themselves groveling at feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize.
Narrated by senior Kate Avsec of Kirtland, sophomore Katie Malish of Chardon, senior Katie Moorman of Concord and sophomore Alexis Zahuranec of Auburn Township, the cast is completed by junior Alexandria Aytay of Chagrin Falls, sophomore Ana Blackburn of Chardon, sophomore Mackenzie Clinger of Chardon, junior Carlee Duggan of Newbury Township and freshmen Nat Engle of Auburn Township, Savanah Insana of Russell Township, Bayleigh Stovall of South Euclid and Tessa Widenhofer of Richmond Heights.
Following opening night, the performance schedule includes: March 1 at 7:30 p.m., March 2 at 2:30 p.m., March 6 at 6:30 p.m. and March 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Performing Arts Department chairperson Shirley Ivancic Stall will direct the production, Adam Pysell will serve as the musical director; Derek Green as the technical director and light and set design; Rosie Gellott and Rebecca Gellott as choreographers; Mary Wheelock as the costumes, hair and make-up coordinator; Melissa Parey as business manager; and Arthur Amantea as sound manager.
All tickets must be reserved and purchased through an easy-to-use online system.
The ticketing website features a theater seating diagram so patrons can choose from available seats. Pick up the tickets at the box office on the evening or afternoon of the performance. Tickets may also be picked up at the school office during regular school hours. Allow 72 hours for ticket orders to be processed.
Living the Truth in Love Awards
Eight students whose lives exemplify the NDCL mission statement were honored with the school’s Living the Truth in Love Award during the televised morning announcements broadcast on Monday.
NDCL President Sr. Jacquelyn Gusdane and Principal Joseph A. Waler presented personalized commemorative plaques to seniors John Kelley of Chagrin Falls and Maggie Wood of Concord; juniors Robert Ohly of Middlefield and Amanda O’Reilly of Middlefield; sophomore Camille Pollutro of Painesville and Stephen Zbiegien of Kirtland; and freshmen Sarah Fox of Cleveland Heights and Ryan Hertz of Cleveland Heights.
Each semester the members of the faculty and administration select two students from each grade level for the prestigious Living the Truth in Love Award. Honorees’ names and photos hang in the school’s main corridor.
“Presenting these awards is one of the most important and joy-filled things I do as president of NDCL,” said Sr. Jacquelyn. “These students stand out as ‘bright light’ examples of our mission, which all of our students, faculty, and staff seek to make real every day.”
