Students auditioned for City College’s spring musical, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” Jan. 29 in the Saville Theatre.
Auditioning students were asked to bring music to sing and comfortable clothing they could dance in. Rehearsals for the musical began Monday, Jan. 31.
“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” is a family-oriented show consisting of many moments of song and dance. The musical was written and composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice in the 1960s.
“We chose Joseph due to its popularity, charm and our ability to offer a production the entire family will enjoy,” director June Richards said. “It enjoyed several engagements on Broadway, as well as many touring companies.”
The musical is based on the story of Joseph, from the Hebrew Bible’s book of Genesis and his, “coat of many colors”.
“We are excited about presenting a production that is popular and provides an exceptional performance experience for our students,” Richards said.
The show will run at the Saville Theatre April 1, 2, 8 9 and 15 and 16 at 8 p.m. Matinee shows will be held April 3, 10 and 17 at 2 p.m.
Ticket prices are to be announced.
