“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.

The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”) and calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”

 

The Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts will present JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT July 8 - 18.  Dance auditions will be held at Encore Studios in Harahan on Sunday, April 25th at 5pm.  All auditioners (except anyone interested in JACOB) must attend the dance audition.  This show will be dance heavy and everyone needs to be able to handle the choreography.  Vocal call will follow beginning at 7pm.  Please select one of the provided vocal options.  Tracks will be used at the audition so no sheet music is necessary. Vocal auditions will continue on Monday, April 26th at 7pm in the Lagniappe Theater at Rivertown.

**Auditions for the children’s chorus will be announced soon**
