THEATRE 29 AUDITIONS: JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT

Theatre 29 announces auditions for the hit musical “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Director Rebecca Havely, musical director Analisa Pilecki, and choreographer Sarah Fleischman will cast 12 male and eight to 10 female singers/dancers. With all the details here’s reporter Rebecca Havely…

The story of Joseph and his many colored coat is a classic Bible story. Scorned by his brothers, he’s sold into slavery, then thrown into jail, but he uses his gift to interpret dreams to become the second most powerful man in Egypt. Auditions will be held Monday, July 10, at 6 p.m. at Theatre 29. Prepare a Broadway show tune and bring a backing track on your cell phone. Dress to move. Jericho McWilliams has been pre-cast in the role of Joseph. All other roles are open. The show’s female narrator must have a strong solo voice. Joseph has a huge family; his father Jacob should be 60-70; his 11 brothers range in age from 12 years old to late 50s. Some brothers will have featured solos such as a French ballad, a country western song and a calypso number. Some brothers will double as a second character such as Potiphar, a spoiled rich Egyptian. Potiphar’s wife is a sexy vixen who lusts after Joseph. The brother that doubles as the character Pharaoh will need to do an Elvis impersonation. Eight to 10 female singer/dancers ages 16 through late 50s will also be cast.

“Joseph” will run four weekends at Theatre 29 from August 25 to September 17, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. For the final weekend of the run, the show will travel to the Barstow Performing Arts Center with performances Saturday, September 23, and Sunday, September 24.
