Description:

AGES 8-98 MAY AUDITION FOR THIS SHOW!!

“Sha la la, Joseph, you’re doing fine! You and your dreamcoat, ahead of your time!” One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors.

Told entirely through song with the help of a main character Narrator, the musical follows preferred son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled, Elvis-inspired, Pharaoh. Joseph’s solution to Egypt’s famine elevates him to Pharaoh’s right-hand man and reunites him with his family.

VOCAL & PRELIMINARY DANCE AUDITIONSHeld on Tuesday, Feb  11 Location: Oak Hills Church - 1100 Blue Ravine Rd. (Folsom)
Auditioners will sign up for a 20 min group audition slot sometime between 5:00- 9:00pm.  Please choose a track with no accompanying vocals (such as a karaoke track). Audition music should be no more than 1 minute. Auditions should be to music (not acapella). The director needs to see how well the student can stay with the music, both in tune and in rhythm. You will be able to upload your music to the audition form. It's best if you have a YouTube link or an actual song file rather than getting a song through iTunes, Spotify or Amazon. We cannot open files through these services.  Auditioners will learn choreography at home via video and will come ready to perform it for the directors right after their vocal audition. 

CALLBACKS (including Featured Dancers) : Held on Wednesday, Feb 12 starting at 5:00pm. The directors will call back certain auditioners to sing again, read a scene, dance some more or any combination of these. They will often ask pairs or groups to read scenes to see how different combinations of actors and personalities work together. CYT callbacks are closed to everyone except the show directors.  If an auditioner is not "called back" it does NOT mean that they will not be cast in the show.

NOTES:
  • People who audition are NOT eligible for a class tuition refund regardless of casting. 
  • All aditioners cast in the show will be charged a production fee of $210.
  • Families are required to volunteer 20+ hours on a parent team.
