Cecilian Musical Society Present Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Following the huge success of ‘All Shook Up’, the Cecilian Musical Society, now in their 98th year, are proud to present Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash hit, ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’.
With the award-winning production team of Des Henn (Director), Barbara Meany (Choreographer), and Shane Farrell (MD) at the helm, this promises to again be a great night’s entertainment for all the family.
Based upon the Biblical Story of Joseph from the book of Genesis, we follow the colourful and comical journey of a young dreamer, Joseph as his gift of prophecy saves him from an uncertain fate.
Classic songs include “Any Dream Will Do”, the Caribbean themed “Benjamin Calypso,” the alluring “Jacob and Sons/Joseph’s Coat,” the rock n’ roll sensation “Song of the King (Seven Fat Cows),” and the memorable “Go, Go, Go, Joseph.”
The Cecilian Musical Society, then known as the Crescent Operatic Society, was founded in 1919. About five years later the name was changed to the Cecilian Operatic Society, the name having been suggested by Mr, M.J. Flood, then District Justice of Limerick.
From 1928 the society lapsed for a number of years until 1944, when it was revived as the Cecilian Musical Society, concentrating chiefly on choral and orchestral concerts. With the completion of the new Assembly Hall at the Crescent in 1947, the society once again revived stage shows, and in December of that year opened its productions with a pantomime.
The society went on to present 130 shows on the Crescent stage. In 2002 The Cecilians produced their first show at the University Concert Hall, “Guys and Dolls”. The society offers opportunities for our members to develop on-stage, production and backstage skills.
Since then, “Sweet Charity”, “Oklahoma”, “My Fair Lady”, “Oliver”, “Crazy for You”, “Singin’ in the Rain”, “42nd Street” & “The Wiz” have been performed to acclaim.
The show will run from November 29 until December 2nd and tickets cost €74 for a family €23 for a standard ticket and €21 for concessions.
