Auditions for “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”

Auditions will be held Tuesday, October 25th, from 7 to 9 pm at Gahanna Middle School West (350 North Stygler Rd). Each auditionee will be asked to sing 16-32 bars (approximately 30 to 60 seconds) of a prepared song. Please bring piano music for the accompanist. Callbacks will be on Monday, October 31st. We are having separate auditions for the Children’s Chorus. All information about those auditions will come through Gahanna public schools, St. Matthews, Gahanna Christian Academy and Shepard Nazarene.

PLEASE BRING YOUR CALENDAR! You will be asked to list all rehearsal conflicts ahead of time at auditions. It is vital in casting that we know of any work conflicts or vacations in advance, so that we can work around them. Resume and headshots are optional.

ALL PARTS will be cast from auditions for the following characters:

Narrator (Female)Alto/Soprano. Vibrant, energetic, charming performer, with a superior voice. The narrator(s) must be adept at both being the focal point and then “blending” into the scene.

Joseph Tenor. Jacob’s favorite son. Joseph early on shows a talent for interpreting dreams and telling the future. Honest and likable with good intent. Humble, but able to transition to the leader of a nation. Must believe in himself and his convictions.

PharaohBaritone. The most powerful man in Egypt, Pharaoh is considered a god on earth. Should be an outgoing, engaging entertainer, able to take the stage and connect with an audience. Singer/actor with good comic timing. Normally done in an “Elvis Presley” style, but we are open to other interpretations (Michael Jackson, Elton John, etc.)

Reuben Baritone. Eldest son of Jacob. Actor should be able to be sappy and then heartless with a smile. Sings “Those Canaan Days”.

LeviBaritone. Third son of Jacob. Sings “One More Angel”.

JudahTenor. Fourth son of Jacob. Actor should be young at heart and a free spirit. He has more energy than all the other brothers combined.
