On Sunday November 5, 2006, the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center on the University of Northern Iowa campus hosted the traveling Broadway musical "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." As part of the Gallagher-Bluedorn activities for this show, the Friends of the Gallagher-Bluedorn invited UNI's Textile and Apparel program to create their own version of dreamcoats and display them during the time interim between the matinee and evening shows. The dreamcoat creations of UNI TAPP students were displayed on stationary models during a "Friends of the Gallagher-Bluedorn" banquet between the shows. Below you can see an image of the stationary model display which took place in Gallagher-Bluedorn's Davis Hall:

After receiving the invitation from the "Friends," Dr. Annette Lynch mobilized two of her classes to participate. Her Costume History students created dreamcoats by re-creating existing vintage apparel and her Professional Development students managed the actual showing of the dreamcoat creations. All the students in Costume History submitted dreamcoats and there was quite an array of super creations; however, the students in combination with external reviewer Linda Grimm, our current apparel design teacher, selected the very best 18 creations for display during the banquet. Below you can see some of the upper level Professional Development students who helped organize the show. You will note their high level of Esprit de Corps, which is typical of UNI TAPP majors!

Dr. Lynch and her students should be congratulated for delivering the goods again, again! Below you can see a photograph of Dr. Lynch and one of the show models.
