The Hebron Academy Players presented “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” on Feb. 25 and 26. With a student and faculty cast and crew of 57 directed by the awe-inspiring Ms. Julie Middleton, Ms. Shailer Barron, and Mr. Paul Thibeault, we were able to perform the best Hebron musical to date!

“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” is a story about betrayal, deception, and forgiveness presented in an action-packed hour and a half. Joseph, the apple of his father’s eyes, is sold into slavery by his 12 jealous brothers. The brothers soon learn the hardships they have to face with Joseph gone. Will they ever see Joseph again?

“Joseph” was an entertaining production, but the real story lies with the cast and crew. Ms. Middleton, our wonderful director, selected student and faculty performers with a wide range of acting and singing experience. The group included basketball players, skiers, hockey players, snowboarders, international students, both middle and upper school students, a school nurse and, of course, the drama group.

The task of assembling everyone for rehearsal was a challenge, given ever-conflicting schedules. The first time the whole cast was on stage performing together was on opening night. Somehow, with late night rehearsals, last minute changes, and illness, the Hebron Academy Players presented a smash hit.

The Androscoggin Theater in Hebron’s Sargent Gym was packed both nights. Many people returned Saturday night to see the show for a second time.

Thank you to all who came out and supported us!
