A NOTE FOR PARENTS:
These auditions are for our Main Stage performance series. The Main Stage program represents our highest level of skill and experience and while our auditions for the adult roles are open to everyone, it is only those individuals (children) that have participated with us in the past, or are currently enrolled in an Inspire Kids program who will be considered for a role.
All participants in the Main Stage performance series must demonstrate a “professional” attitude, desire, and commitment. If you feel your child would benefit from additional training and experience please check our website for information on our Inspire Kids and Inspire Young Artist programming.

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar’s wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph’s gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
