Downtown Cabaret Theatre in Bridgeport, CT is holding open call auditions for their upcoming production of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT on October 15 , 2019 from 5:00pm – 9:00pm at 263 Golden Hill St in Bridgeport.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an unpaid community theatre production.
