I have officially decided which show I will be auditioning for this summer. While I loved my experience in the melodrama a few summers ago, I have to go with the big musical extravaganza of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Nothing beats a big, fun, and energetic musical. Plays are fun to do but for the past well… forever, if a musical is being done, I am all for it. Now… which role to try out for….
- the Elvis channeling Pharoah? I am an Elvis fan, but not the best Elvis channeler.
- Potiphar… never cared for the role. I can’t recall but I think that he was double cast in another role in productions I have been involved with.
- The baker or butler could be fun, but limited roles… possibility.
- There are a few of the 11 brothers (good men and true) I could see myself as and if anyone knows the show and myself well enough they should be able to take a stab at at least one of my choices.
- Jacob… well, I did just finish playing Grandpa Prophater.
- Joseph, himself? I dunno… how old was Donnie Osmond when he stepped into the part in the 90s?
Well, I have a few weeks to narrow my choices unless I decide to say give my anything and sing everything from the show.

Donnie was in his late 30’s or early 40’s when he played Joseph. If I were you, I would go for any part. Makes it more interesting. That cast needs men, so there is a very good chance you will get role other than the one you try out for anyway.
One never knows.
very true, j… lots of male parts. O/C I will be pleased with any part I get.. but I think it is good to let the director know where your interests lie. I will NEVER be a prima donna who limits themselves to one role or nada. So many times I have gotten the better parts by willing to be anything, Hopefully, directors see that.
I say let her know your interests but say you will take anything. i dunno… but I’m looking forward to seeing the show no matter what! It’s been fun to work on its planning stages so far!
Exactly my thought. I bet it has been fun planning. A very fun show.
You want Zebulun. That’s the part I played in the non-dance church version about 15-ish years ago, not that the particular brother really mattered since they split all their songs up anyway.
