The Soo Theatre Project is pleased to announce open auditions for this summer's Broadway musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat. Director Bob Koger and Music/Vocal Director Karen Hughes will be looking for community members to fill roles for 17 men and 12 women, as well as a 20-30 member children’s choir. All auditions will take place at the Soo Theatre, located at 534 Ashmun Street in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
Children’s choir auditions will be held on Sunday, May 1st from 2-4pm. **New** We have also added a second day of Children's Choir auditions for Wednesday May 4th 3:30-5:30 pm. Children in grades 3-6 are encouraged to audition for the production. There is nothing for children to prepare in advance of the audition. Auditions for the cast members will be held on Tuesday, May 3rd and Thursday, May 5th from 7:00-9:00pm each night. There is no need to prepare any audition materials, but candidates may bring a prepared song, if they so choose, and are only required to attend one of the audition times in order to be considered.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the second musical written by the team of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. It moved on to a Broadway production and was further adapted as a straight-to-video film and traveling Broadway presentation starring Donny Osmond. “Joseph” is a high-energy, fast-paced production with very little spoken dialogue that has a history of exhilarating its audiences since moving to the stage in 1970.
The Soo Theatre Project production performs for the public on July 27th – 31st, 2011. Call the Soo Theatre Project Office at (906) 632-1930 to sign up for auditions. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to be a part of this wonderful production!
