AUDITIONS! – Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

AUDITION ANNOUNCEMENT – Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

All roles are open for Plaza Theatre Company’s upcoming production of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT. An open audition is being held at Plaza Theatre Company to cast the show on April 25th and 26th. JOSEPH boasts a script and lyrics by Tim Rice with Music by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. The show is being directed by JaceSon and Tina Barrus with Choreography by Tabitha Barrus, Musical Direction by Bree Cockerell and Stage Management by Cessany Ford. Auditions are by appointment only which can be made by visiting plaza-theatre.com

Audition Preparation:
Auditioners will be asked to come prepared with 32 (and only 32) bars of music from a MUSICAL in the style of the show. Each auditioner should plan to spend about five minutes auditioning for the Director. A call back audition will be held on Saturday April 30th starting at 9am. Those auditioners who the Directors wish to see further will be invited to the call back audition which may last up to four hours time.

About the Play:
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite 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 humanity are continually 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.

Rehearsal and Performance dates:
Rehearsals for JOSEPH will commence on Monday, May 2nd and continue thru opening the show on Friday, June 24th. The show will then play every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening at 7:30pm and Saturday afternoons at 3pm thru July 30th. Some roles may be double cast to accommodate scheduling.
