[February 22, 2017]  LINCOLN - Lincoln Christian University (LCU) will be performing “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” on March 23, 24, and 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the Hargrove Chapel auditorium. Originally created by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber and not having been produced at LCU since 2008, “Joseph” is sure to be a piece of artistry that includes a new score, set, and costumes.
