THEATRE 29 AUDITIONS FOR “JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT”
The Morongo Basin’s premiere, multi-award winning, non-profit, all-volunteer Community Theatre Organization, Theatre 29, announces auditions for “JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT”.
The Broadway hit show will be directed by Rebecca Havely with Music Director Analisa Pilecki and Choreographer Sarah Fleischman.
The musical, with the entire show sung with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, tells the classic bible story; Scorned by his brothers, sold into slavery and jailed for a crime he didn’t commit – how on earth is Joseph going to become the second most powerful man in Egypt? With a little help from his friends, a knack for decoding dreams and a certain extravagantly pigmented jacket, watch the original underdog come out on top in this musical sensation.
Performances will be held four consecutive weekends, from August 25 to September 17, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00PM and Sundays at 2:30PM. For the final weekend of the run, the show will travel to the Barstow Performing Arts Center Friday, September 22, with Performances Saturday, September 23rd and Sunday, September 24th.
Auditions will be held Monday, July 10, at 6:00pm at Theatre 29, 73637 Sullivan Road in the City of Twentynine Palms.
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. Joseph has 11 brothers ranging in age from 12 years old to late 50's. Some brothers will have featured solos such as a ballad sung with a French accent, a Country Western song and a Calypso number. Some brothers will double as a second character such as a Baker, a Butler and Egyptian servants; or Potiphar, a spoiled rich Egyptian.
Potiphar's wife is a sexy, vixen who lusts after Joseph. The brother that doubles as Pharaoh will do an Elvis impersonation. The wives and sisters in Joseph's family will double as Egyptian servants; 8 to 10 female singer/dancers ages 16 through late 50's will also be cast.
