Oklahoma Christian University student in Homecoming production.

Shawnee native participates in OC production

Morgan Barnett from Shawnee, participated in Oklahoma Christian University’s fall Homecoming production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

The performances drew in approximately 2,800 viewers over the course of its three-day showing. 

Barnett, a junior early childhood education major at Oklahoma Christian, played the part of one of the wives in the musical.

Overall, the production featured 67 cast members; 24 were students from OC’s music and theater departments, 40 were children from the surrounding community and three were Oklahoma Christian faculty members.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice co-wrote Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Through the course of the story, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are challenged.

The musical featured an engaging variety of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop, and rock and roll. 

Oklahoma Christian, recognized as one of the best universities in the western United States by U.S. News and World Report and The Princeton Review, offers undergraduate programs in more than 60 fields of study, an undergraduate Honors Program, and graduate programs in accountancy, business administration, engineering, Christian ministry, divinity, and theological studies.

For the last three years, the cost of attendance for OC undergraduate students has stayed the same, making Oklahoma Christian the only university in the state and the only reporting member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities that did not raise its total price.
