From Dream to Stunning Reality: "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" Wows in FoxHound Auditorium

Joseph’s “coat of many colors” wasn’t the only thing that dazzled the audience in FoxHound Auditorium last weekend. Capping off a wonderful Arts Week, the performances of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on Friday and Saturday evening showcased the incredible talent of the cast and crew, with great collaboration between students, faculty, and a faculty child, too! The sing-song storytelling of Ava B. ‘24’s Narrator and the cast’s songs from each scene captivated the audience in place of any formal dialogue — singing throughout the entire show is quite an accomplishment! The Foxcroft community was humming and singing along during the performances and throughout the following week, as the show’s success was talked about well after the final bow.
Senior Moriah F. starred in the leading role of Joseph, the charismatic man whose brothers had it out for him. When their father (played by faculty member Alex Northrup) gives Joseph a stunning rainbow-colored coat, the other brothers become jealous. They sell Joseph as a slave to an Egyptian man named Potiphar (also played by Northrup) and then convince their father that he died.

The 11 brothers inspired laughter from the audience during several scenes, channeling their inner cowboys or Parisians during different musical numbers. Katarina S. ’26, Anna C. ’25, Elise L. ’26, and ZoraNelle B. ’26 shone as vocal soloists, while Natasha H. ’27 and Elle P. ’26 shared their talents as dancers.

Entertaining the audience with her energy and impersonation of Elvis, sophomore Lauren G. stole the show as Pharaoh, who became Joseph’s savior when he pulled him out of jail — put there by Potiphar after a misunderstanding with his wife, played by Aradeal H. ’26 — to interpret some complex dreams.

Hats off to the entire cast and crew for putting together a wonderful show! Special thanks to the band members for lending their musical talents, Maintenance for their support with the set, and, of course, Director Karin Thorndike. To the extended Foxcroft community of students, faculty, parents, family, and friends, thank you for supporting the performing arts last weekend! Bravo, bravo all!
