Erase your winter doldrums with this timeless family favorite of faithfulness and forgiveness. Joseph, his father’s favored son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and values are vigorously challenged. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

“The best kind of feel-good show, unashamed, warm-hearted and irresistible.” – John Peter, Sunday Times

OBU Theatre closes this exciting season with the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award -Winning play, Doubt. In this thought provoking and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects young Father Flynn of impropriety with one of the school’s students. This play was adapted into the 2008 movie Doubt starring Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Viola Davis.

“DOUBT is a lean, potent drama…passionate, exquisite, important and engrossing.” –- NY Newsday

“A beautifully balanced drama. Shanley is a writer working at the top of his craft, making the most of a muted but evocative palette in the pursuit of truth’s shadows.” –- Chicago Tribune
