Hilton Head Preparatory School will continue their 2018-2019 season with an all-school performance of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". JOSEPH is a thrilling musical adventure that follows the Biblical story of Joseph and his famous coat, the favorite son blessed with prophetic dreams, on his journey to Egypt after being sold into slavery by his brothers. He rises to become advisor to the Pharoah and eventually reunites with his family in forgiveness. The audience will enjoy an engaging, crazy quilt of musical styles, from country-western to calypso and bubble gum pop to rock 'n' roll. The show runs at the Hilton Head Preparatory School Main Street Theatre February 13-17, 2019.

Hilton Head Prep's second show of the 2018-2019 season is once again an all school production. "We had great success last year with Les Miserables with an all age cast including faculty, staff and parents. It is definitely something everyone wanted to do again," says Prep's director, Peggy Trecker White. With a cast of 30, it truly mirrors the family atmosphere that Prep instills on a daily basis within the community.

Noted for its family-friendly storyline, universal themes and catchy music and told entirely through song, JOSEPH is the first full-length musical by the legendary theatrical team of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. JOSEPH is a lovely, comic and colorful journey, animated with a high-energy mix of music and dancing. This fast-paced show doesn't give you much chance to catch your breath, but you'll be singing and dancing all the way home!

Seniors Avery Campbell (Joseph), Justin Stone (Levi, Baker, Pharaoh) and Frank Milbourn (Rueben, Butler, Potiphar) are once again featured in lead roles for their final Prep production. Underclassmen in other lead roles include Rachel Stratton, Luke Herman, Hudson Monts, JP Carr, Calvin Middleton, Sam Middleton, Tripp Hedden and Adam Levy. Several lower and middle school students will complete the ensemble.

Performances are February 13-17 at the Hilton Head Preparatory School Main Street Theatre, Wednesday - Saturday at 7:30 pm, and a matinee on Sunday at 2 pm. For tickets and information, visit or call 843-715-8510. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door.
