St. Thomas of Villanova’s Second Summer Production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was awesome by all standards. Thanks to our entire cast, directors and crew. And thanks to all who attended. Here are comments from some of our reviewers:
WOW! St. Thomas’ “Joseph” was amazing—the acting, singing & dancing was first rate. BRAVO!
—Dr. Janice Klich, Guest from Park Ridge, IL
I truly enjoyed the performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at St. Thomas of Villanova. Joseph (Tim Quinn) is a wonderful
actor and has a great voice. The cast did a great job dancing around such a small space. Many of them were terrific singers and
dancers. The young children chorus was a plus. I look forward to seeing future plays from this community theater group.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was outstanding!! I was in awe of the great talent of the cast and inspired by their
willingness to share their God given gifts with others. What I truly appreciated was the fact that so many young and young-at-heart
came together for a good cause; to help build up St. Thomas of Villanova. I am so honored to be part of such a vibrant parish. Kudos to Brad Zamora for his work as production manager and his role in the play. — Fr. James Presta
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat truly was amazing! What a wonderful production… high energy and great talent.
After seeing Joseph with Donny Osmond many years ago, I didn’t think another production would compare but I was surely wrong. I give a lot of credit to the cast—their hard work and commitment certainly paid off. It was a great way to end the day; I fell asleep with a smile. Looking forward to future performances at St. Thomas of Villanova! —Dianne Giovannetti, Guest from Mundelein, IL
Joseph was terrific! The music, the energy, the pure joy coming from the stage resonated through the church and the halls of St. Thomas! At times the solo performances elicited loud cheers from the crowd. The cast gathered the talents from all age groups in the parish, my three children included, and blended them into a well-oiled machine. The contrast of the young children's voices and the power of Joseph and the other older cast members was beautiful and powerful. —Paul Reynolds, Parishioner
It was an amazing show filled with energy, fun and enthusiasm. It takes a beautiful Bible story to a whole new level!
—Father Hugh Fullmer, Guest from Aurora, IL
“I am Blessed”, this was the quote from Jane Liquin, the Director, in the “program notes” from the Musical “Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor
Dreamcoat”. The very appreciative audience at the performances also consider themselves “Blessed” to have been treated to such an outstanding musical production. Thanks to the wonderful direction, a fantastic cast, enthusiastic chorus and an outstanding pit band the production was a very uplifting and inspiring experience for all! —Mary & Bob Cudney, Parishioners
I saw Joseph and Donny Osmond years ago at the Chicago Theater. That was a great experience, but this production was even better! —Sally Hake, Parishioner
“Joseph” and the entire cast were awesome. Best performance and production I have ever seen. Even Father Tom Rzepiela (Pastor of St. Thomas of Villanova) delivered his line with perfection! —Sister Kathleen Melia, Guest from Niles, IL
