About the event

SOME FOLKS DREAM OF THE WONDERS THEY'LL DO... 

Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s multi award-winning show Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has been performed hundreds of thousands of times including multiple runs in the West End and on Broadway, international tours in over 80 countries worldwide and has become one of the world’s most beloved family musicals.

Joseph is an extremely energy-driven show. Don’t be afraid to throw all your energy into your audition, you can’t go too far! Many voices and movements are necessary for the creative team to make casting and callback decisions, so make sure you commit to everything you do during your audition. There will be no spoken audition, only singing and dancing will be required. 

When you’re singing, whether it be for your initial audition or for callbacks, the most important thing to keep in mind is that acting and intentions are everything. It’s not about how you sound, it’s about why you’re singing, what you’re singing for and what you’re trying to accomplish through the music. This entire show is nothing but singing and can only be believable because of the actor’s heightened emotion.

CHARACTERS

JOSEPH: Male age 18+. Eleventh son of Jacob and Jacob’s favorite. Looking for a strong actor with a confident but charming personality. Must move and sing very well.

NARRATOR: Female, age 18+. The Narrator is our host, and through word and song guides the audience gently through the story of Joseph and his brothers. The narrator must be adept at both being the focal point and then “blending” into the scene.We are looking for an excellent singer that can completely invest in the storytelling aspect.

PHARAOH: Male, Age 18+. Pharaoh is the most powerful man in Egypt, and considered a god on earth. He is in a strange psychological place and is desperately searching for the truth in his dreams. The character is in style an homage to Elvis.

POTIPHAR: Male age 18+. Potiphar is a rich, self-indulgent and sophisticated Egyptian capitalist who buys Joseph as a slave. Needs to be a strong actor as well as singer.

MRS. POTIPHAR: Female, 18+, Strong Dancer. Mrs. Potiphar is an indulgent woman who likes to get her own way, and thinks first and foremost about her own personal gratification. Also a part of the ensemble.

JACOB: Male age 50+. Jacob is the father of Joseph and his 11 brothers. He clearly favors Joseph as the first son of his favorite wife, unwittingly causing the friction that exists between Joseph and his brothers. Jacob needs to be a good actor, who can sing and move reasonably well.

JOSEPH’S 11 BROTHERS: Age 10+, Male roles, can be female. (Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin), are jealous of Joseph being their father’s favorite son, sell him into slavery, and ultimately realize their wrongdoing. We would like to find actors who are skilled dancers and singers.

Specific Brother Roles (*): Age 18+

*REUBEN: the oldest, the one who is quickest to lie to Jacob.

*SIMEON: the brother who is first to openly admit they created their own misery by selling off Joseph.

*JUDAH: the first brother who lays down his life for his youngest brother Benjamin.

BUTLER & BAKER: Age 10+ Male roles can be female, (Tenor). The Butler and the Baker both work for the Pharaoh. They are both decent men in precarious situations. They need to be good singers and honest actors. Double as brothers.

FEMALE ENSEMBLE: Age 10+ Will play multiple roles throughout the show including wives to Jacob and his sons and citizens of Egypt. They sing and dance throughout the entire show. Looking for energetic singers who move well. Featured roles and solos will come from the ensemble.

CHILDRENS’ CHORUS: Age 4-14, Male and Female, sing and dance along with main characters throughout the show. May double as other roles.
